A Penguins prospect on Saturday helped position his host country for a gold medal at the World Junior Championship.

Center Oskar Sundqvist scored for Sweden in its 2-1 over Russia in Malmo, Sweden.

Sweden will play Finland on Sunday for the gold medal.

Finland routed Canada, 5-1, in another semifinal on Saturday, leaving the rival Canadians and Russians to play for bronze.

Sundqvist, 19, has two goals for Sweden in the tournament. A center, he was the Penguins' third-round pick (81st overall) at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft at Consol Energy Center.
