Not sure who could have predicted that the Canadian world junior team would be losing 3-1 to Team Slovakia in the second period, but this wicked slapshot from Maple Leafs' draft pick Morgan Rielly on a 5-on-3 potentially changed the outcome of the game.
Rielly and partner Xavier Ouellet were arguably Canada's top defensive unit against the Slovaks. He also had two assists in the game. Sort of inconsequential given the level of opponent, but he had a very strong game and the above goal was fairly impressive and likely the highlight of the game.
