Travis Konecny is having himself a tournament.
The Philadelphia Flyers forward has made some highlight-reel plays in every game for Team Canada so far, and that continued today. Konecny picked up two assists in the 6-0 win against Belarus, but also mixed it up and showed off his gritty side.
After missing the net with a shot Konecny followed the play up and got into it behind the net after the whistle.
He won’t back down from anybody.
The referee had to restrain him.
Later in the period Konecny got off his leash a bit as he picked up a boarding penalty.
A nice hit, but illegal.
Konecny made up for it after getting out of the box two minutes later.
He picked up the puck and fired a cross-ice pass to Brayden Point who scored a filthy goal.
Konecny now has six points, all assists, with a +5 rating in three games for Team Canada.
