Update: Here’s the Free Press’s Helene St. James on the Worlds:

Sulak set up the first goal en route to a 4-3 victory over Austria on Monday. The Czechs finished in third place in Group A at the World Championship in Herning and Copenhagen, Denmark, and now await quarterfinals matchups. (They’ll play the second-place team in Group B.)

Sulak has a goal and two assists in seven games. Fellow Wings prospect and Czech teammate Filip Hronek has a goal and one assist. Other Wings at the tournament are Team USA’s Dylan Larkin (three goals, five assists in six games) and Nick Jensen (one goal, three assists), Denmark’s Frans Nielsen (three goals, three assists in six games) and Sweden’s Gustav Nyquist (three goals in five games).

Tuesday marks the final day of preliminary play. Sweden and Russia will battle for first and second place in Group A, while fourth place can be claimed by either Switzerland, Slovakia or France.

The U.S., which leads Group B with 16 points, plays Finland for first place in that group. Canada and Denmark are also in position to advance, with Latvia lurking in fifth place. The top four teams in each group advance to play cross-over quarterfinals.
