Akil Thomas saved the best for last.
The 51st pick by the LA Kings in the 2018 NHL Draft entered the Championship Game of the 2020 World Junior Championship with just one point, an assist in Team Canada's opening game of the tournament.
But with the score tied 3-3 late in the third period, Thomas showed up in a big way.
The goal capped off a wild third period in which Canada scored three straight goals to erase a two-goal deficit.
Thomas was able to break free in the offensive zone and grabbed control of the puck just ahead of Russian goaltender Amir Miftakhov to put his team up 4-3.
"I was being patient hoping my time would come," Thomas said after the game. "I saw the loose puck and I just kind of reacted. It doesn't feel real."
