The US Under-17 Select Team improved to 2-0 at the Five Nations Tournament in Slovakia on Thursday. The United States pounded Switzerland, 7-1, in a game that was never really in doubt.

Michael Floodstrand, an uncommitted prospect who played this past season with the Chicago Mission program, was named the US Player of the Game. The Hinsdale, Ill. native will play this upcoming season for the US National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor. He'll play for the USNTDP U-17 Team.

Kris Oldham and Nick Vilardo split the goaltending duties, and according to all accounts, played very well between the pipes for the Americans.

Up next for the USA is a matchup with Germany on Saturday at 8 a.m. ET.
