Grimaldi Stars As U.S. Wins Gold

Trailing 1-0 in the second period, Rocco Grimaldi scored back-to-back goals and linemate Vince Trocheck added an empty netter as the U.S. beat Sweden 3-1 to win the gold medal at the World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia.

Grimaldi was named the U.S. player of the game.

After hitting both posts on a first-period shot, Grimaldi scored from a bad angle and tipped a Jacob Trouba shot to lead the American comeback.

Grimaldi is the 12th UND player to win a gold medal at the event and the fifth American. For more, see the Herald’s site.

    I listened to you on the Pipeline Show, Brad.

    Sounds like Dean and Guy are sticking with the Canadian line that all of our goals against them and Sweden were lucky and “nothing to write home about”.

    haha. taking 4th isn’t really anything to write home about either.
