Former NHL star Jaromir Jagr scored a hat trick Wednesday to lead defending champion Czech Republic to a 4-0 win over the United States in the quarterfinals of the ice hockey world championship.

The Czechs will meet Sweden or Germany in the semifinals, while the U.S. team was eliminated.

The 39-year-old Jagr beat goalie Ty Conklin on a breakaway to put the Czechs ahead 1-0 with 1:15 remaining in the opening period.

The Czechs killed a two-man advantage before Jagr added his second 4:47 into the middle period on a power play with a slap shot from the right circle.

Tomas Plekanec scored the third in the final period before Jagr completed the scoring on a power play.
