Kailer Yamamoto continues to impress.

The Oilers first-round selection (22nd-overall) at the 2017 NHL Draft is competing in the World Junior Summer Showcase in Plymouth, MI, and had two assists in USA White's 8-2 victory over Canada Red.

Yamamoto played alongside forwards Casey Mittelstadt (Buffalo Sabres) and Logan Brown (Ottawa Senators). Mittelstadt, chosen eighth-overall in June, registered two goals and two assists. Brown scored a pair of goals and added a helper, leaving the trio with nine points combined in the game.

Tweet from @coreypronman: Yamamoto (EDM) doesn't score here, but just one example of dominance the line with him Mittelstadt (BUF) and Brown (OTT) have shown

Yamamoto recorded 42 goals, 57 assists and 99 points in 65 games last season with the Spokane Chiefs.
