BRECLAV, CZECH REPUBLIC — In its first game of the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup, the U.S. Under-18 Select Team lost to the Czech Republic, 4-2. Team USA received goals from Brock Boeser (Burnsville, Minn.) and Robert Jackson (Alameda, Calif.).

“We had some opportunities to score,” said Derek Plante, head coach of the U.S. Under-18 Select Team. “The second period was tough, there were many penalties from our side. Almost 17 minutes in the penalty box. We rallied, but we could not catch up.”

Team USA came out strong in the first, and opened the scoring on a power-play rebound tap-in from Boeser at 8:42. Dennis Yan (Ann Arbor, Mich.) wristed a shot off the goal post, and Boeser was there to wrangle the rebound.
 
In the second, two U.S. players took simultaneous penalties, giving the Czech Republic a five-on-three advantage that they used to even the score. Eight minutes later, the Czechs scored the go-ahead goal during a power play. At 16:09, the Czechs tallied yet another power-play goal.
 
Two minutes into the third, Team USA’s Jackson was on a breakaway when a Czech player brought him down, resulting in a penalty shot. Jackson took his time and stuffed the puck past the Czech Republic’s Daniel Vladar and pulled Team USA within a goal.
 
With less than a minute left in the period, Team USA pulled goaltender Evan Sarthou (La Grange, Ill.) for the extra man. After Team USA nearly scored the equalizer, the Czechs got possession of the puck and sent it down the ice for an empty-net goal and the 4-2 final.

The U.S. Under-18 Select Team continues tournament action 9:30 a.m. ET tomorrow against Russia.

Terreri headlines ADM goaltending clinic in New Jersey

Feb. 15, 2017 | Forty aspiring boys and girls goaltenders turned New Jersey’s Prudential Center practice facility into a puck-stoppers paradise last week during an American Development Model youth goaltending clinic led by the New Jersey Devils and USA Hockey.
 
Phil Osaer, USA Hockey’s ADM manager for goaltending, helped provide the training, which included a presentation for parents and coaches in addition to on-ice guidance for the athletes. New Jersey Devils goaltending coach Chris Terreri, a U.S. Olympian in 1988, also worked with the participants on and off the ice. Terreri has a long history with USA Hockey, dating back to his own youth goaltending days. In 1975, he led his team from Warwick, Rhode Island, to a USA Hockey national championship. He later competed for Team USA at the IIHF Men’s World Championship in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1997.
 
“It was an honor to have Chris join us for the clinic and it was great to work with so many enthusiastic goalies, coaches and parents,” said Osaer. “One thing that stood out to me was Chris emphasizing the importance of young goalies playing multiple sports. It benefits them in terms of developing their all-around athleticism, which will help them become better goalies, and also in terms of avoiding injuries.”
