WAHLSTROM CLOSING IN ON U.S. RECORD BOOK
Following his fourth goal of the 2018 IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship in the victory against Switzerland, forward Oliver Wahlstrom has cracked the top ten list for goals scored by U.S. skaters. Wahlstrom scored four goals in last year's tournament and is now tied for fifth all-time with Clayton Keller (2015 & 2016/Arizona Coyotes) and Reid Boucher (2011/Vancouver Canucks). Phil Kessel (2004 & 2005/Pittsburgh Penguins) holds the U.S. record with 16 goals in 12 games.
