Ducks at the World Championships, Day 13.

And then there were none.

Cam Fowler and Team USA had nothing for the Czech Republic in a 4-0 loss Wednesday, ending their run at the IIHF World Championships. Jaromir Jagr had a hat trick and Ondrej Pavelec made 29 saves. The U.S. was outshot 39-29 while finishing out of medal contention for the seventh consecutive season.

Fowler was a minus-1 in a team-leading 22:51 for the Americans. He finishes the tournament with one goal, two assists, and a minus-3 rating.

Here’s a link to a PDF document of Team USA’s stats. It’s pretty clear why they failed to medal – among their leading scorers were the New York Rangers’ Derek Stepan, and University of Wisconsin sophomore Craig Smith.

The tournament ends Sunday. Check IIHF.com for the most up-to-date results.
