"Tween" Scores Big with Degree Cool & Confident Kid Award
Jack Cohen Wins Skills Clinic for His Youth Team
Led by the Florida Panthers' David Booth

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - USA Hockey and Degree Deodorant today announced the winner of their inaugural Degree Cool & Confident Kid Award. Jack Cohen, a nine-year-old from Miami, was selected from hundreds of entries as this year's male Cool & Confident Award winner.

As part of his prize, Jack and his team, the Miami Toros, will participate in a VIP skills clinic on Saturday (June 25) hosted by David Booth, who has played on multiple U.S. national teams and is a current member of the National Hockey League's Florida Panthers. Jack's team will also receive $500 to help with equipment costs and team travel.

From bouncing back from injury to helping a teammate, "tweens" around the country told USA Hockey and Degree their moments of success and the many ways that they inspire others.

"I have a great hockey sense," said Jack. "I can't hear from my left ear, so I can't hear where a player is coming from. But I seem to know where the puck is. My mom calls this my sixth sense, but I just call it playing hockey!"

"We love our partnership with Degree Deodorant, and their concept of the Cool & Confident Kid Award is terrific," said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. "Having confidence both on and off the ice is important and we couldn't be more pleased to recognize Jack as our inaugural winner."

NOTE: The Cool & Confident Kid Award and Degree's sponsorship of USA Hockey is part of a larger Unilever mission to provide product solutions that help free tweens from odor and discomfort.

U.S. Inline National Team Edges Slovenia, 4-2,
at 2011 IIHF InLine Hockey World Championship
Team USA Improves to Perfect 2-0-0-0 in Tournament

PARDUBICE, Czech Republic – Junior Cadiz (Los Angeles, Calif.) scored twice and Tommy Tartaglione (Harbor City, Calif.) made 33 saves, as the U.S. Inline National Team edged Slovenia, 4-2, in its second game of the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation InLine Hockey World Championship.

“We saw two great goaltenders play tonight," said Rob Chornomud, head coach of the U.S. Inline National Team. "I thought our team defense was excellent, and our special teams played well when we were killing penalties late in the game.”

After falling behind, 1-0, in the first period, Team USA jumped out to a two-goal lead with three unanswered second-period goals. Cadiz scored less than 90 seconds into the frame to tie the game, 1-1. Then, just 31 seconds later, Anthony Miner (Glendora, Calif.) gave the U.S. its first lead of the night. Cadiz' second goal of the period with 10 seconds remaining in the stanza sent Team USA to halftime with a 3-1 advantage.

Slovenia cut Team USA's lead in half with a power-play goal two minutes into the third. But Nathan Sigmund (San Diego, Calif.) found the back of the net at 4:53 of the frame to give the U.S. a 4-2 edge heading into the final period.

Despite taking two penalties early in the fourth, Team USA held off Slovenia to improve to 2-0-0-0 (W-OTW-OTL-L) in the tournament. The U.S. will face Canada tomorrow at 2 p.m. EDT in its third and final preliminary-round game. A full schedule is below.

NOTES: A win tomorrow by Team USA would guarantee the U.S. a first-place finish in its preliminary-round group ... The U.S. is defending its gold medal from last year, when Team USA capturedRob Chornomud is serving as head coach of the U.S. InLine National Team for the third consecutive year, while former U.S. Inline National Team member Josh Milewski is the assistant coach for the second straight year … In the 14-year history of the IIHF InLine Hockey World Championship, the United States has earned gold medals in 1996, 1997, 2004, 2006 and 2010; silver medals in 1998, 2001 and 2009; and bronze medals at the 2000, 2003 and 2005 tournaments.

ST PETERSBURG --  Two hours before the start of Monday night's Rays-Brewers contest at Miller Park, Joe Maddon was asked what he thought it would take for the Rays to make a move in the American League East.
The Rays' manager considered the question for a moment then noted if everything else remained status quo, his team needed to improve on offense and needed to get starters Jeff Niemann and Wade Davis to start "pitching like they can."
Well, two out of three wasn't bad for the Rays, who scored eight runs and got a quality pitching performance from Niemann in an 8-4 win over the Brewers at Miller Park with 35,495 watching.

In Michigan, police were called about two teenagers who were looking into vehicles. The teens, 13 and 14, were apprehended, but claimed they didn't steal anything. But police found them with some items, including a smartphone. Police got a pretty good idea it was stolen when the two boys didn't know the phone's password. The teens' parents told police they didn't recognize the phone either.
