The winners of the semi-finals qualify to play for the gold medal prize in the finals while the teams that lost face each other in the bronze medal game. In the last season tournament, the two teams that lost in the semi-final playoffs, USA and Czech Republic, played for the bronze medal prize. The United States national team won the bronze medal after thrashing the Czech Republic in a nine to three points win.
It is important to note that, as for the fourth and fifth teams in each group of the Top division they have to play in the relegation round. The three best teams qualify for the next season’s Top Division tournament while the last placed team is relegated to Division One. In 2018, only two teams that played in relegation, Belarus, and Denmark, in which Denmark won.
