Ostlund, Wahlberg win silver at World Juniors; Kulich takes home bronze

The U.S. closed things out in the third in a physical period that featured nine penalties, including four 10-minute penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct in the final 30 seconds of the game. Ostlund was assessed a two-minute penalty for roughing along with a 10-minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Ostlund led all forwards in the gold medal game with 21:10 of ice time while Wahlberg skated 20:04.

Ostlund paced Sweden with 10 points (3+7) in seven games during the tournament, including two points (1+1) in Sweden’s 5-2 semifinal victory over Czechia on Thursday.

Wahlberg finished with three points (1+2) in seven games, recording the game-winning goal in the team’s 6-0 win against Latvia on Dec. 26 to open tournament play.

In the bronze medal game, Czechia entered the third period down 5-3 before Kulich led the comeback, tallying a goal and two assists in the third to ignite the 8-5 come-from-behind victory.  

Kulich skated 20:16, recording two goals and two assists for four points and adding eight shots as the team captain was named Czechia’s Player of the Game.  

His first tally of the contest came after Finland’s Emil Pieniniemi was assessed a tripping penalty to give Czechia a power play with less than four minutes to go in the first. Kulich capitalized seven seconds into the power play as he received a pass from Matyas Melovsky and buried a one-timer from the right faceoff dot to put the Czechs on the board.
