Lake Superior State senior defenseman Steven Oleksy totaled six points as the U.S. InLine National Team went 3-0 during pool play at the 2008 International Ice Hockey Federation InLine World Championships.
With Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Czech Republic, Team USA finished first in Group B and received a bye into the quarterfinal round.
Oleksy totaled a goal and three assists against the Czech Republic.
"This game was a lot different that our previous two," said Team USA head coach Darren Turcotte. "The Czechs were very skilled, with three NHL players. But we stuck together as a team and pulled it out."
Oleksy notched three of his team-leading four points in the first quarter as Team USA jumped to a 4-1 lead. He also assisted on Kyle Gouge's game-winning goal in the fourth quarter.
Oleksy picked up assists during Team USA's 9-3 victory over Germany and 6-5 win against Finland.
Former Laker Chris Peterson has one goal in the tournament.
The quarterfinal round begins Thursday.
