The U.S. team earned its third consecutive medal at the championship. Trent Frederic, a Chesterfield native and sophomore at the University of Wisconsin, scored four goals to lead the United States in its 9-3 defeat of the Czech Republic. The victory gave the United States three-straight medals at the World Junior Championship for the first time in U.S. history and its sixth medal in the last nine tournaments [gold in 2010, 2013 and 2017; bronze in 2011, 2016 and 2018]. Brady Tkachuk, who plays at Boston University, followed in his family’s footsteps at the championship. He had nine points on three goals and six assists in seven games. Two years ago, his brother Matthew, now with the Calgary Flames, tied for the U.S. team-lead with 11 points in seven games while their father, Keith, followed a ninepoint performance in 1991 with a sevenpoint effort in 1992.
