Friday, 08.12.2011 / 1:32 PM / Prospects

The U.S. Under-18 Select Team scored a pair of power-play goals and added an empty net tally to earn a 3-1 win against the Czech Republic at the 2011 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament on Friday.

With the victory, Team USA finished fifth in the tournament. The Americans posted a 1-2-0-1 (W-OTW-OTL-L) overall record, losing only once in four outings.

"We played our best defensive game of the tournament this afternoon," U.S. coach Seth Appert said. "We're disappointed to win four out of our five games this week, including the exhibition, and not have a shot at first place. But, as a staff, we couldn't be more proud of our players."

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- J.T. Miller, Connor Murphy and John Gibson are three completely different people on and off the ice. However, they have one important thing in common -- all three passed on the chance to play NCAA hockey in the fall to skate in the Ontario Hockey League.

Miller, taken by the New York Rangers with the 15th pick of June's draft, passed on a scholarship to the University of North Dakota to sign with the Plymouth Whalers. Murphy, the 20th pick by the Phoenix Coyotes, opted to play with the Sarnia Sting rather than attend Miami (Ohio) University. Gibson, a second-round pick of the Anaheim Ducks, will skate with the Kitchener Rangers this season rather than play at the University of Michigan.

Jordan Masters and Alex Galchenyuk scored in a shootout as the U.S. Under-18 select team beat Slovakia 6-5 in their final preliminary-round match of the 2011 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament at Zimny Stadium in Piestany, Slovakia.

Despite beating Russia in overtime on Tuesday and the shootout win against Slovakia, the U.S. can finish no higher than fifth after placing third in Group B with two overtime wins and one regulation loss. The Americans, who battled back from a two-goal deficit on three occasions against Slovakia, will play Friday against the Czech Republic.

Masters, of the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the United States Hockey League, and Galchenyuk, of the Ontario Hockey League's Sarnia Sting, scored in a span of 55 seconds with less than five minutes remaining in the third period to force the overtime. John Gillies, of the USHL's Indiana Ice, turned aside 26 shots, including nine in the second period. He stopped both attempts in shootout.

"I'm extremely proud of our guys for overcoming so much adversity today," U.S. coach Seth Appert said. "We stuck together through penalties and after falling behind a couple of times, and came away with a big win."

Canada, which has now won two straight by a combined 12-1 after dropping a 5-1 decision to Sweden on Monday, will advance to Friday's semifinal round. The medal round will be held Saturday.

The Canadians opened a 4-0 lead in the first period. Derrick Pouliot (Portland Winterhawks) and Rychel (Windsor Spitfires) connected in a span of eight seconds less than two minutes into the game before Scott Laughton (Oshawa Generals) and Athanasiou (London Knights) scored in a span of 3:19 later in the period.

Goalies Daniel Altshuller (Napean Riders) and Domenic Graham (Drummondville Voltegieurs) combined on the shutout. Hunter Shinkaruk (Medicine Hat Tigers) converted a penalty shot 14:46 into the second to extend the lead to 5-0 and Athanasiou scored off a feed from Morgan Rielly (Moose Jaw Warriors) 9:05 into the third.

Elliott ready to claim Avalanche roster spot

Thursday, 08.04.2011 / 5:28 PM / Prospects

Rick Sadowski  - Correspondent

DENVER -- Stefan Elliott certainly noticed when the Colorado Avalanche traded John-Michael Liles to Toronto just before the 2011 Entry Draft.

Like Liles, who led all Avalanche defensemen in scoring for five consecutive seasons, Elliott is a puck-carrying blueliner with plenty of offensive talent.

Liles' departure opened a roster spot Elliott hopes to fill when training camp begins in September.

"It's kind of hard not to (keep up with offseason news)," Elliott told "I follow the NHL and I keep track of all the moves that are going around, especially when they involve the organization that you belong to. When a move involves a defenseman, it kind of sticks out a little more."

Devils' pick Boucher signs with Sarnia Sting

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

Forward Reid Boucher, a fourth-round selection by the New Jersey Devils in the 2011 Entry Draft, has signed a contract with the Ontario Hockey League's Sarnia Sting.

Boucher is the second player from the U.S. National Team Development Team to sign with the Sting in the last 24 hours. Defenseman Connor Murphy, taken by the Phoenix Coyotes with the 20th pick of the first round, opted to sign with the Sting on Thursday rather than attend Miami University in the fall.

Boucher was selected in the 14th round by Sarnia in the 2009 OHL draft.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
