Kuli Wins Gold, Memorial Cup In Full Swing


The 2012 World Hockey Championships came to a close over the weekend with Russia winning the Gold medal over Slovakia 6-2. In the Bronze medal game, the Czech Republic defeated 3-2.

Nikolai Kulemin had one shot on net in the Gold Medal victory playing just over 12 minutes. He finished the tournament with four points in 10 games with a +4 rating while averaging 14:21 per game.

Prospect Leo Komarov had one goal in the tournament with a minus 1 rating as he saw over 13 minutes a game. Komarov earlier in the tournament said that he hopes to sign with the Maple Leafs this summer.

In more prospect news, Greg McKegg and the London Knights are taking part in the Memorial Cup and play their third and final game of the round robin tonight against Edmonton (7pm, Sportsnet). This is the first time in Memorial Cup history that all four teams have 1-1-0 records. London began the tournament with a big win over the defending champion Saint John Sea Dogs before losing to host Shawinigan Saturday.

McKegg has been held off the scoreboard in the first two games and he will need a big performance tonight to keep the Knights title hopes alive.
