USA Medals again

It wasn't what they hoped for, but the Americans won the Bronze Medal this
afternoon in Buffalo, defeating Sweden 4-2.

Isles prospect Brock Nelson had two shots on goal, but did not figure in the
scoring. Nelson, who missed 1 game due to injury, finished the tourney with 1
assist and 9 shots on goal.

Nelson, 19, will return to North Dakota. He has 2 goals and 4 assists in 20
games for UND. North Dakota is currently ranked 2nd in the Nation; Yale is #1
(and Union is #15). Nelson is the youngest forward on the Sioux; he's missed
only one game (which took place during the World Jrs.).
