Kristian Vesalainen

After showcasing his best offensive showing of the tournament on New Years Eve, Kristian Vesalainen followed that up with a 3-point afternoon against the Czech Republic. Unfortunately, his efforts were in a losing cause, as Finland was eliminated by the Czech Republic. Vesalainen finished his tournament with 6-points (2G, 4A).

Dylan Samberg

Samberg and Team USA defeated Russia to advance to the Semifinals against Sweden. In 20:44 of ice-time, Samberg recorded 2 assists and one shot on goal. Samberg heads into the Semifinal carrying a 1G, 2A stat-line. He is now the only Jets prospect remaining in the tournament
