WJC 2014: Kings prospect scores in 5-1 win for Team USA

The youngest prospect currently in the Kings’ system, Hudson Fasching (fourth round, 2013 NHL Draft), scored the third goal of the game for Team USA in their opening round matchup at the 2014 World Junior Championship. In fact, his line was one of the most productive at both ends of the rink and the Americans went on to defeat the Czech Republic 5-1.

Check out the highlights…

Chris Peters of UnitedStatesofHockey.com added the following as part of his game report:

Hudson Fasching — Fasching got the only goal his line scored and it was a great effort to drive the net and finish a play after Copp’s shot was stopped. Fasching once again showed how good he can be in close to the net with a few plays early. He drew a first-period penalty just by being strong on the puck and keeping his feet moving. His physical game is taking a step forward and his skating has grown tremendously in the last year. Fasching was a force out there for a lot of the contest.

Team USA will play again on Saturday morning. All of their games are being televised live on the NHL Network.
