Brandon Hagel, Nicolas Beaudin and Brandon Pirri have captured gold at the 2021 IIHF World Championship.
Team Canada capped off their incredible turnaround on Sunday with a 3-2 overtime victory over Finland, the sixth win over the final seven outings after opening the tournament with three straight losses. Hagel registered a shot in 13:40 of ice time, Beaudin had one shot in 9:48 of the game and Pirri was held off the scoresheet in 12:33 of action.
Over the championship run, the Blackhawks trio skated in all 10 of Canada's games, with Pirri scoring three goals and Beaudin adding an assist.
REICHEL FALLS IN BRONZE MEDAL GAME
Germany was held off the medal stand with a 6-1 loss to Team USA in the bronze medal game earlier on Sunday.
Lukas Reichel registered two shots in 15:59 of ice time in the loss, finishing with six points (2G, 4A) in nine skates during the tournament -- good for third in scoring on the Germany roster.
Blackhawks draft pick Drew Commesso was part of the bronze-winning U.S. squad, but served as backup in just one outing and didn't make an appearance after joining the Americans early in the group stage.
