Prospect Watch - Jan. 2

Blake Pietila (5th round, 2011) and Team USA advanced to the semifinals of the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship on Wednesday with a 7-0 win over the Czech Republic. Pietila contributed four shots, went 1-for-2 on faceoffs and finished a plus-1 as the U.S. advanced to face Canada in Thursday's semifinal.

Pietila registered two assists on Dec. 27, when the Americans opened the tournament with an 8-0 rout of Germany. He finished the four-game preliminary round with two assists and six shots, but posted a plus-4 and an 11-for-16 (69%) record on draws. The Michigan Tech (CCHA) sophomore has 10 goals and two assists in 17 games with the Huskies.
