Coyotes prospect Max Domi and his Team Canada teammates won the gold medal on Monday night at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship in Toronto.
Canada defeated Russia, 5-4, in the title game at the Air Canada Centre.
Domi notched one goal and two assists in the gold-medal game, and finished the tournament with five goals and five assists in seven games. He was voted to the tournament’s All-Star Team and was named the tournament’s Best Forward.
"This is unbelievable," Domi told TSN after the game. "We’re all proud of each other. We’ve been working a long time and this feels pretty good right now… Every single guy in that room bought in from Day One and we worked hard every shift, every practice, every game. We deserve it."
The Coyotes selected Domi with the 12th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He is playing this season for the London Knights in the Ontario Hockey League.
Coyotes Assistant to the G.M./Goaltender Coach Sean Burke also earned a gold medal as a member of Team Canada’s management team.
Prospect Anton Karlsson, whom the Coyotes selected 87th overall at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, also participated in the tournament for Team Sweden. Karlsson notched two assists in seven games for the Swedes, who placed fourth.
