Adam Fox, the Flames' third round pick in 2016, had three assists for the USA in the win, including setting up Colin White's third period equalizer which sent the game to extra time. He accrued 14:32 of ice time in Thursday's gold medal match-up.

Dillon Dube, also drafted in the second round in 2016, logged 17:19 of ice time for Canada.
