The U.S. National Under-18 Team took two of three games last week, including two 11-goal performances.
Jack Hughes (Orlando, Fla.) scored a hat trick, Cole Caufield (Stevens Point, Wis.) recorded five points (2G, 3A), and Matthew Boldy (Millis, Mass.) scored twice in the U18s 11-2 victory over the Central Illinois Flying Aces. Alex Turcotte (Island Lake, Ill.), Sean Farrell (Hopkinton, Mass.), Judd Caulfield (Grand Forks, N.D.), and Trevor Zegras (Bedford, N.Y.) also scored one apiece in the win. Goaltender Cameron Rowe (Wilmette, Ill.) recorded the victory in net.
Spencer Knight (Darien, Conn.) recorded a shutout and Caufield recorded four goals and an assist in the U18s 11-0 performance against the Capitols. Turcotte, Ryder Rolston (Birmingham, Mich.), Patrick Moynihan (Millis, Mass.), Domenick Fensore (Thornwood, N.Y.) and Drew Helleson (Farmington, Minn.) tallied additional goals to bring the U18s to an 11-goal total.
Rolston, Hughes, and Caufield scored in the second game against the Capitols, but the U18s ultimately could not return from a two-goal deficit and lost the final game of the weekend, 5-3.
