U.S. stretches lead to 3-0 after two periods

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The United States used more strong special-teams play to increase their lead against Canada to 3-0 after two periods here at Herb Brooks Arena.

Quentin Shore scored the period's only goal. With the Americans killing a penalty, Shore chased defenseman Derrick Pouliot deep into the Canadian zone, stripped him of the puck and rocketed a shot under the crossbar at 13:57. The U.S. got two late power-play goals in the first period to grab the lead.

Swedish coach happy with preparations for WJC

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Sweden coach Rikard Gronborg said Oscar Dansk, who has missed the past two games since being hit in the head by a shot in practice Monday, will start in goal in the team's final game of the national junior evaluation camp Saturday against Finland.

Gronborg also said forward Oskar Sundqvist, who sustained an injured neck when he collided with a metal stanchion at the end of the team's bench during a game against the United States earlier in the week, will play Saturday.

Shinkaruk will use draft disappointment as motivation

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Hunter Shinkaruk grew up in Calgary and went to games at Scotiabank Saddledome, so when he saw the Flames walk to the podium at the 2013 NHL Draft to make the 22nd pick, he admits he was hopeful his name would be called.

Shinkaruk, who was No. 6 in NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American prospects, said he had expected to go in the top 15, maybe the top 10. But as the wait got longer, he actually got a bit hopeful knowing the Flames were coming up with their second of three first-round picks.

The Flames instead picked Gatineau Olympiques forward Emile Poirier, who has joined Shinkaruk to play for Canada at this week's national junior evaluation camp; Vancouver, with the 23rd pick, then chose Shinkaruk.

USA-Canada lineups

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The first game on the final day of the USA Hockey National Evaluation Camp will feature Canada facing the United States.

Among the U.S. forward lines to watch is the trio of Quentin Shore centering Nicolas Kerdiles and Adam Erne. Erne had the game-tying goal and the shootout winner Thursday against Finland, while Kerdiles has been arguably the best American forward during the entire week of camp.

Jon Gillies will start in goal, with Anthony Stolarz backing him up.

Sweden coach took positives from loss to Canada

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Despite a 7-3 loss to Canada on Thursday, Sweden coach Rickard Gronborg said he saw some positive things from his team.

"We did a great job of coming back from the 4-0 deficit to come back to a 4-3 situation at the start of the third period," he said. "In the third period we ran out of gas. A team like Canada, they'll take full advantage of that.

"We can't be slacking like that and have a period off or even time in a period off because they're going to capitalize right away. At the same time, I saw some good things last night with a short bench with injures. I saw some character coming back from 4-0 to 4-3 and make a game out of it. It's a game where you lose but you learn quite a bit from that loss."

Wilson, Laughton ready to finally play for Canada

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Tom Wilson and Scott Laughton knew before they arrived here for this phase of the national junior evaluation camp that they only would be playing the final game, Saturday against the United States.

While it hasn't been fun sitting out, they've tried to make the most of it.

"It's been pretty relaxing, but also I've been learning a lot," Wilson, taken by the Washington Capitals with the 16th pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, told NHL.com. "I've been watching all I can during the games, learning during practices and trying to take in everything I can."

Sabres picks get hometown treatment in Lake Placid

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- It's about a six-hour drive from Buffalo to Lake Placid, but that hasn't stopped a number of Sabres fans from filling Herb Brooks Arena to get a glimpse of a few future Sabres.

American forward J.T. Compher and Swedish forward Gustav Possler have done well in their time at this week's USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp.

Possler, a right wing taken in the fifth round (No. 130) of the 2013 NHL Draft, has a team-high four points (two goals, two assists) in three games.

Gillies not taking No. 1 spot for granted

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Jon Gillies knows the potential of what is out there for him in December when it comes to playing for the United States at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship.

But Gillies, a Calgary Flames prospect, isn't ready to proclaim himself the frontrunner in the race to become the team's No. 1 goaltender for the tournament, which will be held in Malmo, Sweden.

Gillies got a head start a year ago, when he used a strong performance at the 2012 USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp as a springboard to earning the backup job to John Gibson at the 2013 WJC.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
