EDMONTON -- The Albertan who won more than $8.7 million on Tuesday has claimed their prize.

Hayley McNeil had the winning World Juniors 50/50 ticket for the jackpot of nearly $17.5 million, netting herself $8.7 million.

The draw was the largest of the series, eclipsing the nearly $10.6-million jackpot on Monday.

The online 50/50s were held every game day and tickets were only available to people in Alberta.

The money raised through the draws will be invested into hockey initiatives in the province.

The United States defeated Canada on Tuesday to capture the gold medal at the tournament.
