By virtually every account, the top pick of the 2013 NHL Draft will either be Nathan MacKinnon or Seth Jones. Still, if you’re a fan of dark horse candidates, it’s easy to get behind Halifax Mooseheads standout Jonathan Drouin.

Proponents of the 17-year-old prospect could trot out stats all they want, but this impressive shift where he takes over the QMJHL’s scoring lead on Sunday argues the point in convenient video form:

(In case you’re wondering who Drouin is in that clip for some reason, he’s the guy wearing No. 27/doing amazing things.)

The Mooseheads pounded Acadie-Bathurst 11-3, with Drouin scoring a goal and three assists.
