Watch: Nicolas Roy Scores the Go-Ahead Goal To Put Canada In Front at the World Juniors

For the third straight game, it’s a Canes prospect giving Canada the lead.

Canada v Latvia - 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship

The 2017 World Juniors gold-medal game has gone back and forth all night, with Canada losing a 2-0 lead to two goals by the United States. But as has become customary, it’s a Hurricanes prospect doing scoring the big goals to give Canada the lead.

Tonight, it’s Nicolas Roy doing the honors, putting Canada up 3-2 with a snipe midway through the third period. You’re forgiven if your loyalties are split the rest of the evening, although now that Roy’s goal won’t stand up as the game winner, uh...go USA.
