The 2022 IIHF World Championship wrapped up on Sunday with Finland taking down Canada in the gold medal game. Before that though, Czechia stomped the United States in the bronze medal match. On that Czech team was Washington Capitals defender Michal Kempny.
Kempny skated a team-high 24:11 of ice time in the 8-4 victory that featured a hat trick from Boston Bruins forward David Pastrnak. The Czechs scored six goals in the third period alone to fuel their first medal at a Men’s World Championship since 2012.
