United States National Under 18 Team Sinks Finland 4-3 - Clinches Top Seed Group B - USAHockey.com - Tuesday, April 22.

Lappeenranta, Finland - Kyle Connor extended his goal scoring streak to four games, and Jack Eichel scored the game-winning goal, as the United States National Under-18 Team defeated Finland, 4-3 Tuesday at Lappeenranta Arena. With the win, the United States clinches the top seed in Group B at the 2014 International Ice Hockey Federation Men's Under-18 World Championship with a 3-0-0-1 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record.

The final frame remained scoreless, and the game tied, until 1:04 remained in the contest when Eichel took a pass from Sonny Milano and tucked the puck between his legs onto his forehand. Eichel quickly fired a shot that caromed off Kahkonen and into the net to secure the 4-3 victory for the United States. He is now riding a three-game point streak after being held without a point in the first preliminary round game versus Switzerland. The forward has three goals and two assists over that span.

The United States will next skate in a Quarterfinal round game on Thursday, April 24 at 6:00 am ET. Having earned the top seed in Group B, they will play Slovakia, the fourth seed in Group A. The game will be broadcast LIVE on FASTHockey.com or you can follow along on twitter -@USAHockeyScores or @USANTDP

Some just like to rush things. It'll never change.
If he doesn't do well over two straight AHL campaigns, you'll start to have a slight worry?

Come on. How many forwards aren't even decent in the AHL until they're 22 and still end up being impact players in the NHL? Not many.

There's the impatience that pushes people into positions they're not ready for, and then there's wanting to see your players succeed at lower levels now. If we're talking about you having to grow for a couple years to even be a decent AHL guy, we're not talking about a very good NHL guy.

Doesn't matter where you were drafted and how old you are, it matters how you play.

I'd have voted that way too. Most goals by a D man, 1 point of of third for overall D man scoring, and definitely the best defensive D man in the list of top scorers.

While looking at the award winners I also see Baptiste was there for Scholastic.

United States Beats Sweden - Earns Shot At Gold - Under-18 World Championships - USAHockey.com - Saturday, April 26.

Lappeenranta, Finland - Dylan Larkin and Ryan Hitchcock each scored one goal and added one assist as the United States Mens National Under-18 Team defeated Sweden, 4-1 in Semifinal action here today at Lappeenranta Arena. With the win, the United States advances to the Gold-Medal game of the 2014 International Ice Hockey Federation Men's Under-18 World Championships.

Sweden tallied the first goal of the game 2:39 into the opening frame, immediately after its first power play expired. The United States responded at the 3:11 mark with a goal from Auston Matthews. Kyle Connor skated down the left sideboards into the Swedish zone and found Matthews streaking down the ice in support. Connor sent a pass to Matthews near the top of the circles for a snap shot that sailed past Linus Soderstrom for the score.

Hitchcock scored the go-ahead goal for the United States at 7:47 of the second stanza. Noah Hanifin entered the offensive zone and absorbed a hit in the left faceoff circle, wristing a shot on net. Hanifin's rebound floated to Hitchcock on the opposite side of the crease who shoveled the puck over Soderstrom to give the United States a 2-1 lead entering the third period.

Larkin gave the United States a two-goal advantage at 8:38 of the final frame. Hitchcock skated behind the attacking net and stole the puck from a Swedish defender. Quickly, he found Larkin open at the top of the crease for a quick shot under the crossbar, beating Soderstrom before he could react. Jack Eichel secured the 4-1 victory with an empty-net goal with 46 seconds remaining. Larkin assisted on the play. Alex Nedeljkovic made 19 saves in the win while Linus Soderstrom kicked out 30 saves in the loss.

The United States Mens National Under-18 Team will conclude tournament play on Sunday against the Czech Republic in the Gold-Medal game at 12:00 pm ET. The game will be held at Lappeenranta Arena and broadcast LIVE - for FREE - on FASTHockey.com.

United States Captures Gold Medal - Under-18 World Championships - USA Hockey Official Website - USAHockey.com - Sunday, April 27.

Lappeenranta, Finland - Auston Matthews had two goals and Sonny Milano registered one goal and two assists as the United States Mens National Under-18 Team defeated the Czech Republic - 5-2 - here tonight at Lappeenranta Arena. With the win, the United States captures its eighth Gold Medal at the 2014 International Ice Hockey Federation Men's Under-18 World Championship.

The United States struck first just 33 seconds into the game off the stick of Jack Dougherty. Jack Eichel corralled the puck in the attacking zone and found Milano for a shot that bounced off Czech goaltender Vitek Vanecek. Dougherty picked up the loose puck and sent it into the net for the tally. Matthews doubled the lead at the 6:55 mark. A blast from Ryan Collins created a scramble in front of Vanecek that resulted in a loose puck in the high slot. Kyle Connor reached across his body and dove to put a second effort on net. The puck caromed to Matthews who jammed it under Vanecek's pads for the tally. Milano gave the United States a 3-0 lead just 1:46 later. Johnathan MacLeod had a shot blocked at the right point and Louie Belpedio launched the ricochet on net. Vanecek deflected the puck high in the air and Milano snuck behind the goaltender to swat the puck into the cage on its way down. Before time expired on the period the Czech Republic notched a rebound goal to close the gap, 3-1.

Dylan Larkin reclaimed the three-goal lead at 1:13 the second stanza. Alex Tuch dumped the puck deep into the Czech zone to initiate a line change. Milano won a footrace to the puck behind the net and changed direction as he gained possession. Moving to his backhand, Milano found Larkin streaking to the slot from the bench as he had just replaced Tuch on the ice. Larkin lifted the puck up and over Vanecek for the tally. Matthews notched his second of the night at 6:57 to push the lead to 5-1. Brandon Fortunato hit Matthews with a pass near center ice, allowing Matthews to walk to the top of the faceoff circles for a wrist shot that sailed over Vanecek's glove and into the net. The Czech Republic struck back with a power-play goal at 13:20 to cut its deficit to 5-2. The third period saw the United States hold the Czech Republic to just three shots on net, each turned aside by goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic who made 15 total saves in the victory.

Notes - Sonny Milano was named the United States best player, while the Czech Republic's best player was announced as David Kase. Louie Belpedio, Jack Eichel and Alex Nedeljkovic were named the best three players of the tournament for the United States.

The United States captured its eleventh consecutive medal, a tournament record at the U18 World Championship. Those eleven medals now include gold medals (2005-2006, 2009-2012, 2014), three silver medals (2004, 2007, 2013) and one bronze medal (2008).

Kyle Connor recorded a point in all seven tournament games, netting four goals and three assists. Jack Eichel finished tournament play with a six-game point streak. The forward had five goals and five assists over that span. Auston Matthews concluded tournament action on a six-game point streak. The forward netted five goals and collected two assists over that span.

Game #2 Article - Goodrow Evens Series For North Bay - OntarioHockeyLeague.com - Friday, May 2.

Captain Barclay Goodrow scored 2:30 into overtime to lift the North Bay Battalion to a 4-3 Game #2 win over the Guelph Storm. For the second straight game the Roger Championship Series needed extra time to declare a winner. This time it was Goodrow and the Battalion that managed to even the series with the Storm at 1-1. Game #3 is Tuesday in North Bay at 7:00 pm ET.

Steven Trojanovic got the Storm on the board first with a shot from the half boards that handcuffed Battalion goalie Jake Smith, rolling up over the goalie and into the back of the net. Robby Fabbri put the Storm up by two when his cross-crease pass got deflected by a Battalion defender into his own net. Marcus McIvor cut the Storm lead in half with his powerplay goal from the point at 16:01 of the first period. Mathew Santos, jumping on a loose puck, tied the score with his first of the post season at the half way mark of the second. Fabbri and Zack Mitchell played give-and-go with Fabbri finishing his 11th of the playoffs giving the Storm a 3-2 lead heading into the third period.

Nick Paul's wrist shot from the faceoff dot beat Justin Nichols to tie the game for the Battalion with just over five minutes remaining in the third period. Then just 2:30 into overtime Ben Thomson hit Goodrow with a pass at the top of the circles and he beat Nichols low stick side to give the Battalion the 4-3 win.
