Former Los Angeles Jr. King Jack St. Ivany won a silver medal as a member of the 2019 U.S. U.S. National Junior Team after its 3-2 loss to Finland in Saturday’s World Junior Championship finale played in Vancouver, British Columbia.
St. Ivany, a 1999-born defenseman who was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the fourth round of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, is patrolling the blue line this season as a freshman at Yale University.
The Manhattan Beach native has two goals and six assists in the first 12 games of his NCAA Division I career with the Eastern College Athletic Conference program.
Prior to Yale, St. Ivany played two seasons of junior with the United States Hockey League’s (USHL) Sioux Falls Stampede earning All-USHL Third Team recognition last season.
In his final season with the Jr. Kings in 2015-16, St. Ivany, who played his entire youth career with the Toyota Sports Center-based club, helped the program’s 16U AAA team capture a Pacific District championship. That squad included 2017 NHL draft picks Cole Guttman (Tampa Bay Lightning) and Jake McGrew (San Jose Sharks).
