Team USA's Troy Terry had the only marker of the five round Shootout to lift his team to a 5-4 Gold Medal Match victory over rival Canada. Kieffer Bellows, son of ex-Lightning forward Brian Bellows and a New York Islanders first rounder, had a pair of goals for the Americans in their win. Lightning prospect Mathieu Joseph scored a would-be insurance marker 4:05 into the Third Period to give the Canadians a 4-2 lead, but the US scored a pair of goals within 3:02 of Joseph's marker to eventually take the game beyond regulation. Joseph also had an even strength helper on Canada's first goal. Mitchell Stephens chipped in a helper on the Canadians' second goal. Joseph played 17:52 in the match, Taylor Raddysh 13:41, Anthony Cirelli 16:55, and Stephens 18:51.

The tournament was a disappointment for netminder Connor Ingram, who struggled in 3 of his 4 starts and ultimately lost the starting job for the Canadians to Carter Hart. Forward Taylor Raddysh, one of the top scorers in the Canadian junior ranks, put on a show dominating the scoresheet against an inferior Latvian side, but struggled to make a dent against the tournament's heavies. Results were ultimately far more positive for the high energy, high character trio of Joseph, Cirelli, and Stephens. All three had a fantastic tournament from start to finish, with the exception of a couple of games missed by Stephens due to injury, proving their worth as potential NHL'ers who could find themselves up with the Lightning within the next few seasons.

Scouting Comments:
"He was one of the top-3 goalies on our list. We had him ranked very high. He's a player that our goalie coach Dave Alexander from Syracuse went to work with him a couple weeks ago at Hockey Canada's goalie camp, he's one of the goalies invited to Canada's World Junior Team - one of four goalkeepers. Had a tremendous season in Kamloops, gave them a chance to win every night and Dave was very complimentary coming out of the goalie camp about Ingram, and confirmed a lot of things that we've seen in him." -- Lightning Director of Amateur Scouting Al Murray

"Connor Ingram is a second-time draft eligible goalie who continues to impress with his performances for Kamloops. Ingram was one of the key reasons Kamloops qualified for the playoffs and also had a strong showing there. Ingram isn’t the biggest or most athletic goalie, but is one of those goalies who simply gets the job done. Ingram is strong down-low and plays a competitive game, he plays with confidence and seems to have the ability to get his body on the puck, even if in unorthodox ways. Him saving Kamloops defense’s bacon was a common occurrence. Ingram also excels under a heavy workload and shows no signs of wear against high volume of shots. Ingram’s size is just OK for a modern goalie, and he does show more weakness upstairs. While Ingram might not be the most technically or athletically proficient goalie prospect, we have liked his performance this year and he has built up a reputation of someone who can be relied upon in difficult situations and continue to perform at a high level. It would be fair to say that the mental part of goaltending might be Ingram’s biggest strength." -- HockeyProspect.com's Black Book
