Have yourself a tournament, Kieffer Bellows.

With his second goal of the bronze-medal game Friday against the Czech Republic, Bellows passed Jeremy Roenick for the most goals scored by an American at a single World Junior Championship with nine.

Roenick's record stood since 1989, when he notched eight at the tournament held in Anchorage, Ala.

JR responded with a tweet, giving Bellows his stamp of approval.
