After running into a hot goaltender in their 1-0 loss to Sweden in the previous game, Team USA had no such troubles in their match against Switzerland as they romped to a 10-1 win over the Swiss on Day 5 of the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Eleven different players made the scoresheet for the U.S. in the win, with top 2016 NHL Draft prospect Auston Matthews leading the way with a four-point game off of two goals and two assists. Four players – Matthew Tkachuk (2016), Christian Dvorak (ARI), Zach Werenski (CBJ), and Colin White (OTT) – picked up three points in the win over the Swiss, with Nick Schmaltz (CHI) and Sonny Milano (CBJ) each posting two points.

USA goaltenders Alex Nedeljkovic (CAR) and Brandon Halverson (NYR) split time in the net, with that duo stopping 27 of 28 shots in the win.

The London Knights duo of Tkachuk and Dvorak totaled three goals and three assists between them. The two forwards spoke with the media following the win over Switzerland, with their comments being captured in this Hockey’s Future video.
