Jacob Markstrom and Nick Bjugstad Earn Medals At World Championship

Markstrom brought home a gold medal with Sweden in his first appearance with the national team since 2010. He played in five games this year, recording two wins with a 1.58 goals-against average. This was his first gold medal, but he had previously taken home a bronze in 2010 and silver and bronze medals at the World Junior Championships in 2009 and 2010. The Panthers have yet to sign him to a new contract, but with a better team in front of him he could easily be the goalie of the future.


Bjugstad was one of the younger members of Team USA, and only average nine minutes per game. He chipped in two assists to help the Americans to the bronze medal, his third bronze in international competition. Bjugstad last wore the red, white and blue in 2012 and scored four goals to help medal at the World Junior Championship. The Panthers may not have had much to cheer about this season, but the experience these young hockey players got against the world’s best can only help in the future.
