Kings at the World Championships, Day 13.

Jack Johnson 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.

Johnson was a minus-1 in 21:13 for the game. For the tournament, he had a goal and two assists in seven games, finishing with a cumulative minus-4 rating, and averaging a team-best 23:24 TOI.

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.

Jonathan Bernier and Team Canada are back in action tomorrow.
