The 19-year-old opened the scoring at 5:32 of the first period putting home his own rebound.

Finnish captain, and Montreal Canadiens prospect, Artturi Lehkonen had the lone goal for Finland.

Zach Fucale, Montreal’s second round pick from the 2013 draft, made 27 saves for the win.

Per TSN’s Mark Masters, Fucale along with teammate Eric Comrie, a Jets’ prospect, combined for a shutout streak of 158 minutes and 26 seconds passing Jake Allen and Martin Jones’ mark set during the 2010 tournament.

Nashville Predators’ 2013 fourth rounder Juuse Saros made 32 saves in the loss.

Canadian captain, and Ottawa Senators prospect, Curtis Lazar along with Rangers’ prospect Anthony Duclair had Canada’s other goals.
