All five of the Philadelphia Flyers prospects that are competing in the World Junior Championships were in action yesterday. Robert Hagg of Sweden and Anthony Stolarz of the Team USA both played today as well. Here is a look at how they have performed over the past two days:
Valeri Vasiliev (Vasilyev) – Team Russia
Yesterday Russia defeated Swutzerland 7-1. Vasiliev had one shot and was a +1. He was not a factor in the game.
Scott Laughton – Team Canada
In Canada’s 5-4 shoot out loss to the Czech Republic yesterday Laughton had one assist. He also registered two shots on goal and a roughing minor. Canada does not take losses in this tournament lightly, so Laughton’s leadership ability will now be put to the test.
Taylor Leier – Team Canada
Leier did not factor into the loss yesterday. He had one shot on goal and was -1 for the game. According to multiple tweets and sources, Leier got a decent amount of ice time as a penalty killer.
Anthony Stolarz – Team USA
As expected, Anthony Stolarz did not play in USA’s contest against Slovakia. He did, however, start in today’s game against Germany. The United States dominated Germany to the tune of an 8-0 victory. Stolarz earned a shutout on only 15 shots. Germany is one of the worst teams in the tournament, having been outscored 24-4 so far. But, a shut out is a shut out.
Robert Hagg – Team Sweden
Sweden defeated Finland on Friday 4-2. In the game, defenseman Robert Hagg registered one shot and was +1. He also had four penalty minutes, two for a roughing and two for tripping. Today, Sweden annihilated Norway, 10-0. Hagg had one goal, three shots on goal, and was +2.
