IIHF U20 WJC: Day Four

Group A
USA 3 vs. Slovakia 0
Anthony DeAngelo, USA, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Tournament totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM

Wings first rounder Dylan Larkin again led the way for Team USA with 1 goal and 1 assist in their 3-0 blanking of Slovakia. Canucks second rounder Thatcher Demko stopped all 17 shots he faced for USA's second consecutive shutout. Aside: don't read too much into Anthony DeAngelo's offensive production in the tournament. He's not playing the same role in the WJC's he does in the OHL, playing more of a defensive role and only seeing time on USA's second PP unit.

Finland 1 vs. Canada 4
Brayden Point, Canada, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Tournament totals: 3 GP, 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM

Group B
Czech Republic 4 vs. Denmark 3 (OT)
Dominik Masin, Czech Republic, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Tournament totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM

It took an overtime marker by Bruins first rounder David Pastrnak for the Czech Republic to finally dispose of pesky Denmark 4-3. A pair of helpers by Jets first rounder Nikolaj Ehlers allowed the Danes to extend the game past regulation despite a steep shot disparity that reached 48 to 14 for the Czechs by the game's end. Note that Dominik Masin has been playing the net front role on the Czech power play in the tournament, setting screens and looking for deflections.

IIHF U20 WJC: Day Three

Group A
USA 6 vs. Germany 0
Anthony DeAngelo, USA, 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM

Red Wings first rounder Dylan Larkin had 2 goals and 1 assist as Team USA smashed Germany 6-0. Rangers second rounder Brandon Halverson stopped a meager 14 shots for the shutout. The game also featured the first goal of the tournament for USA captain Jack Eichel, a sparkling wraparound in the Third Period of the game. Eichel is expected to go in the top two of the June draft.
