Trevor Zegras Goes Into Gold Medal Game as an All-Time Great in U.S. World Junior History


A 16-year-old Nate Leaman wasn’t watching the World Junior Championship in 1989 – probably because he couldn’t find it on television – so he did not witness the havoc Jeremy Roenick and Mike Modano played on their opponents to finish 1-2 in scoring in Anchorage. There’s a good chance he wasn’t watching in 1991 either, when Doug Weight led all scorers with 19 points in Saskatoon. But he was behind the bench as an assistant coach when Jordan Schroeder scored 11 of the 27 career points he registered in three WJCs en route to becoming the highest-scoring player the United States has ever produced.
