It's been a colorful month for Vadim Shipachyov.
Gold and bronze, more specifically.
After signing as the second player in Golden Knights history on May 4, Shipachyov finished a dominant performance with Russia at the World Championships by taking home a bronze medal on Sunday.
In total, Shipachyov finished the tournament sixth in scoring with 13 points (2g, 11a) in 10 games.
Known as more of a playmaker than a goal scorer, it must be noted that 11 of Shipachyov's 13 points came on assists, and only teammate Artemi Panarin had more assists (13) in the tournament.
Shipachyov's best work came in the latter stages of the preliminary round, when he helped Russia rally to a 5-1-0-1 record.
This earned Russia the second seeding (behind Team USA) in Group A. Shipachyov's squad then defeated the Czech Republic in the first game of the knockout round.
Russia's momentum continued into the third period of its semifinals matchup with Canada, before Canada rallied from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Russia, 4-2.
Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant was an assistant coach for Canada, which went home with silver medals after being beaten by Sweden in the gold medal game.
Russia rebounded from its loss to Canada by defeating Finland on Sunday to secure the bronze.
