Chicago Blackhawks forward Artemi Panarin had a goal and two assists in Russia's 7-2 win over the United States to capture the bronze medal at the 2016 World Championships in Moscow.

Panarin, 24, finishes the tournament with 15 points (six goals and nine assists) in 10 games, which ranks him second in tournament scoring to his teammate Vadim Shipachyov (18 points), It is the second straight year the Russians have medaled at the world championships after taking silver at last year's tournament.

Chicago Blackhawks prospect Tyler Motte was scoreless in the loss to Russia, while Vincent Hinostroza did not play. Both players had a goal and two assists in the tournament.

Sergei Mozyakin had two goals and an assist, while Viacheslov Voinov, Ivan Telegin, Yevgeni Dadonov and Shipachyov also scored.

Frank Vatrano (Boston Bruins) scored both goals for the U.S. and David Warsofsky (New Jersey Devils) added two assists. Top NHL draft prospect Auston Matthews was scoreless.

The U.S. fell in the bronze-medal game for the first time since 2009 when they fell 4-2 to Sweden. The Americans finished in the top four in the tournament for the third time in the last four years, a stretch that has only been equaled once. They won bronze at last year's tournament (3-0 over Czech Republic) and in 2013 (3-2 over Finland).
