Game Schedule and Results

On Thursday evening, St. Martin scored twice in Team USA's 4-0 shutout of Germany in the quarterfinal to advance to the semifinal round. The U.S. now faces Finland on Jan. 13 at 12 p.m. CT, while Canada takes on Czechia in the remaining semifinal.

St. Martin opened the scoring just 64 seconds after the drop of the puck when she sent in a deflection from behind the goal line. Her offense struck again less than three minutes later when she sent the puck bar down to double the lead for Team USA. On the way to helping the Americans gain a 58-7 edge in shots on goal, St. Martin tallied five shots on goal and was ultimately honored as Player of the Game.

Through four games played, St. Martin has tallied four goals and three assists for seven total points, while registering 19 shots on goal. The Ohio State signee has also skated to a plus-5 rating on the ice with Team USA.

As an alternate captain in 2024, St. Martin is competing in her third IIHF U18 Women's World Championship after she was the youngest skater on Team USA's silver squad in 2022, before playing in five games in Sweden to earn a bronze medal at the 2023 Championships. St. Martin is one of seven Minnesotans on the roster of 25.

Should they advance past Saturday's semifinal, St. Martin and Team USA will be on the hunt for its first gold medal since 2020 in the 2024 Championship scheduled for Jan. 14. All games will be aired on the NHL Network.
