Members of the Blackhawks organization continue to shine on the final day of Worlds

Artem Anisimov and Dominik Kubalik scored in the Third Place Game ahead of Sunday's Gold Medal Game, featuring Henri Jokiharju, Dylan Strome and Kevin Lankinen. 


Russia 3 , Czech Republic 2 (SO)

Artem Anisimov and Dominik Kubalik found the back of the net as Russia took home the Bronze Medal in a 3-2 SO win over the Czech Republic at Worlds. 

Anisimov ended an impressive tournament with the game-tying goal for Russia, as he played an important role throughout Worlds for a national team featuring some of the top players in the NHL. His fourth goal of the tournament came off a loose puck, as Arty's shot was tipped through the legs of Czech goalie Šimon Hrubec in the second period. 

Dominik Kubalik also found the scoresheet in the Third Place Game and will end Worlds tied with Patrick Kane as the highest-scoring member of the Blackhawks organization. Not bad for the new guy. With Kubalik waiting in the slot, Jan Kovar found the Blackhawks prospect for his sixth goal of the tournament.

Finland 3 , Canada 1 

Kevin Lankinen turned in another incredible performance as Finland won the 2019 Ice Hockey World Championships 3-1 over Canada on Sunday. The Blackhawks prospect helped shutdown some of the top national teams in the world throughout the tournament, blanking Russia and stepping up in impressive wins over Sweden and Canada. His 43 saves led the way for Finland in the championship game.
