Jack Hughes, the consensus No. 1 prospect for the 2019 NHL draft, continued his record breaking at the IIHF World Under-18 Championship Sunday.
With an assist in the second period of the bronze medal game against Canada, Hughes passed Alex Ovechkin for the most career points at the tournament with 32. Hughes had tied the mark with a goal earlier in the period. Both played in 14 games.
The Americans beat the Canadians 5-2 to take home a medal for a 16th straight year.
Hughes finished with three points in the game, needing just one point to tie Nikita Kucherov‘s 21 points in 2011 for the most in a single tournament.
Cole Caufield remained tied with Ovechkin for most goals in a single tournament with 14. Caufield missed an open net on a pass from Hughes early in the third period.
