UND’s Rocco Grimaldi leads Team USA to gold over Sweden

After being in the doghouse for what was characterized as an attitude problem, it’s nice to see USA forward Rocco Grimaldi get some sweet vindication after being the 13th forward on Monday during team USA’s win against Slovakia. This morning, Grimaldi was named the player of the game and lead Team USA with two goals, as USA beat Sweden 3-1 in the championship game of the U20 IIHF WJC. Grimaldi was two posts away from scoring a hat trick as well, but the puck never crossed the goal line.

Here is the video Grimaldi two goals, [this is the one snuck past the Swedish goalie] and [a deflection off a shot from the point]
