2018 recruit Joel Farabee assisted on two goals and Jake Wise set up another as Team USA defeated the Czech Republic, 4-1, in the 2018 IIHF World U18 Championships in Russia. The USA, which clinched a medal for a 14th consecutive year, will seek its eighth gold medal in the past 10 tournaments today in the final against Finland. The game will air live on NHL Network at 10:30 a.m. ET and will be repeated at 7:30 p.m. ET. Farabee, who has eight points (4G, 4A) in the tournament, was named one of the Three Best Players of the Tournament from Team USA.

The gold-medal game will be a rematch of last year’s tournament final when the U.S. defeated Finland, 4-2, with Farabee scoring twice, including the game-winner.
