Pietila celebrates U.S. gold at 2013 WJC

Devils prospect Blake Pietila and Team USA have captured gold at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia.

The U.S. knocked off defending champion Sweden, 3-1, on Saturday to claim its third world junior gold, and second in the last four years.

Pietila, the Devils’ fifth-round selection in 2011, played in all seven games for the Americans, registering two assists, 11 shots and a plus-5. He finished the tournament with a 20-for-32 (63%) record on faceoffs.

A native of Milford, Mich., Pietila is in his sophomore season at Michigan Tech (CCHA), where he has 10 goals and two assists for 12 points in 17 games.
