Congrats to USA.

Nick Shore end tourney with 3 goals and 7 assists.

Jason Zucker finishes with 4 goals and 3 assists.

Zucker wins his 3rd Gold Medal for Team USA. Twice Under 18 World Champion & Under 20 World Champion.

Wonder if that's ever been done before by another US player? If so, it can't be too many.
