By @MichaelCaples –

Another day, another win for Team USA at the IIHF Under-18 Men’s World Championship.

The U.S. squad – which is the NTDP Under-18 Team with a few call-ups from the U17s – posted a 12-5 win over Slovakia to improve to 2-0 in the prestigious international tournament.

Jack Hughes and Cole Caufield continued to build on their NTDP records, as both scored four goals apiece in the lopsided victory.

Hughes, named Team USA’s top player in the contest, racked up seven points in the win.

Matthew Boldy, Alex Turcotte, Owen Lindmark and Cam York (Michigan commit) also scored in the win for Team USA.
