A beyond busy, five-team season of hockey that took him all over the globe is finally over for Bruins prospect Charlie McAvoy, as Team USA has been bounced from the 2017 World Championships by virtue of their 2-0 loss to Finland in today’s quarterfinals showdown.

In what was a staunch change from the top-pairing minutes he logged for Boston University, the U.S. team at the 2017 World Juniors Championship, P-Bruins, and even the Big B’s in the playoffs, McAvoy skated in more of a supporting role for Jeff Blashill’s USA squad.

It was there that McAvoy’s tournament comes to a close with the 19-year-old having put up one assist, a plus-5 rating, five shots on goal, and six minutes in penalties in eight games played.

So, in total, and between five different clubs, McAvoy’s final stat line on his 2016-17 season will read seven goals, 31 assists, 38 points, and a plus-21 rating over the course of 63 games played.

McAvoy was not the only B’s prospect skating for the U.S., by the way, as forward Anders Bjork also skated, but was used sparingly and served as the club’s extra forward most nights, with zero points and three shots on goal in five games. And with that dip into the international game over for Bjork, it’s expected that he and the Bruins will meet to discuss whether or not he’ll sign his entry-level contract or go back to Notre Dame for his senior season with the Fighting Irish.
