Zegras enjoyed an American victory

Zegras enjoyed an American victory

Trevor Zegras All fire, all fire. There really is no other way to keep it.

The first round pick of the Anaheim Ducks showed off his talent on Tuesday, scoring two goals and three assists in the 7-0 win over the Czech Republic over the United States.

The center player has now had ten points from three games since the start of the World Junior Hockey Championship, surpassing nine scores in five games last year.

World class

“Trevor praised the world-class talent, the goalkeeper.
Spencer Knight after the meeting. His skills are the best I have ever seen for a player his age. He loves the sport and is passionate about hockey. When he is on the ice, he constantly tries new tricks. As a goalkeeper, it’s a big challenge when you play with him. It would be nice to have him here with us. “

Last year, Zegras finished the race with nine assists, but could not find the back of the net. Before the start of this tournament, he promised to score the first goal of his career in the World Juniors.

Mission accomplished: He already has five.

“He’s a dangerous player on many levels. If you try to block a pass, he’s surprised to throw you. Good offensive players do the same. He opens the pass lines when he throws and he opens the shooting lines as he travels. I’m very happy to be the most involved player without Puck and he’s been dangerously rewarded, ”said Nate Lehmann, the American coach.

Finally a goal for Cofield

In addition, Canadian Cole Coffeefield’s hope took advantage of this ac chakat and recorded its first goal in the tournament. He also added an assist and has three points in several games since the start of the competition.

Bobby Brink (2), Matthew Boldy and Arthur Kaliev scored other goals for the Americans, while Cam York had three assists.

In the case of Knight, he recovered well after a shaky Curtain-Riser start, in which he allowed the Russians four goals in 12 shots.

“It’s not the start I wanted, but it’s part of hockey. You can not always be perfect, especially in these tournaments. It’s important to turn the page, even if it’s not always easy,” thinks the Florida Panthers.
