The 2019 IIHF Men's World Championship came to an end Sunday afternoon and all four Vegas Golden Knights players in the tournament earned a medal.

Mark Stone, Shea Theodore and Jonathan Marchessault earned a silver medal with Team Canada as the Canadians fell to Finland, 3-1, in the gold medal game. Nikita Gusev scored the deciding goal in the shootout against the Czech Republic to lift Russia to victory in the bronze medal game.

Stone, who led Canada with 14 points (8G, 6A) was named the most valuable player in the tournament. He was on the ice in every key situation for Canada during Worlds and scored three game-winning goals.

Gusev tied Tampa Bay forward Nikita Kucherov for the team lead in scoring as he notched 16 points (4G, 12A) in 10 games. He finished two points back of Sweden's William Nylander (18 points) for the top scoring ranking of the tournament. Gusev picked up an assist on Artem Anisimov's game-tying goal to send Russia along to the shootout where it captured the bronze.

Theodore scored the lone goal for Canada during the gold medal game as he sliced his way into the offensive zone and snapped a shot into the top-right corner. He finished the tournament with seven points (2G, 5A) and kept up a +9 rating.

Marchessault pocketed 10 points (3G, 7A) for Canada during the tournament and was the team's fourth-highest scorer. He earned bronze while representing Canada for the first time in his career.
