U.S. beats Slovakia, gets Switzerland in quarters

Jack Eichel scored on a wrist shot with 28 seconds left in overtime to give the United States a 5-4 victory over Slovakia at the hockey world championship on Tuesday.

The Americans finished first in Group B with six wins and one loss. The result means the U.S. will meet Switzerland in the quarterfinals.

"It was great to get the goal there," said the 18-year-old Eichel, who is expected to be the No. 2 pick in the NHL draft next month.

"It's good for us to win our bracket and be able to control our own destiny."

The U.S. blew a 3-0 lead after goals by Ben Smith, Seth Jones and Anders Lee. (AP)

Fisher confirmed that the former Notre Dame quarterback was on Florida State's campus Monday.

Golson, a two-year starter at Notre Dame, announced that he intended to transfer last week after it became clear that he wasn't guaranteed a starting spot with the Fighting Irish. The highly talented yet turnover-prone quarterback will not be prevented from transferring to the school of his choice, Notre Dame athletics director Jack Swarbrick said Monday. (Chicago Tribune)

Additional opponents, dates and times will be announced at a later date. SIUE went 12-16 last season under Lennox Forrester, who was not retained. (Staff report)
