The 2015 IIHF World Hockey Championships have ended, and it’s fair to say the New York Islanders were represented well.
Brock Nelson, Anders Lee and Nikolay Kulemin each left Prague with medals yesterday. Team USA took home Bronze with a 3-0 win over the Czech Republic. Russia exited the tournament with Silver, losing in the championship game, 6-1, to Team Canada.
While most of his Islanders teammates are at home resting, Brock Nelson is over 5,000 miles away in the Czech Republic, representing the United States at the IIHF World Championships. Not only is he representing his home country, but he is leading the team in scoring. Nelson has scored six goals for the United States, which will face Russia on Saturday.(h/t Lighthouse Hockey)

Following a 3-1 loss to the Americans on Sunday, Slovenia has been relegated to Division IA for the 2016 World Championships.
The goal for Slovenia was simple: get a point, they stay alive. Get two or three, they’d be in decent shape for their final meeting against Denmark. Slovenia came into the game against the Americans knowing that a loss in regulation would put an end to...
The Americans will improve to 2-0-0-0 at the World Championships thanks to a 2-1 victory against Norway, a team that fought until the very end.
Unlike USA’s 5-1 slaughter of Pekka Rinne and the Finns on Friday, Norway proved to be a tough cucumber in a game that could have easily changed direction. It all started fine and dandy for the Norge when defenseman Ole-Kristian Tollefsen...

Former Fighting Sioux forward Brock Nelson has had an incredible World Championships for team USA. Nelson leads team USA in goals and has scored (5g-2a—7pts) and if my math is correct is tied for third on the team in points. The team USA roster is loaded with good, young talent and looks like an former NCAA All-Star reunion tour.
