In the second day of the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, Max Domi of the OHL's London Knights scored two goals and added two assists as Canada grabbed the top spot in Group B with a 7-5 win over Sweden at Zimny Stadium in Piestany, Slovakia.
Domi, who is the son of former NHL player Tie Domi, is also a projected first round selection, possibly a top-ten pick, in next year's NHL Draft.
Canada led 3-2 after 20 minutes with goals from Nathan MacKinnon (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL, Morgan Klimchuk (Regina Pats, WHL) and Anthony Duclair (Quebec Remparts, QMJHL). Curtis Lazar (Edmonton Oil Kings, WHL) and Domi scored early in the second period to put Canada in the driver's seat before Fabian Gunnarson scored late in the second period.
A short-handed goal by Sam Reinhart (Kootenay Ice, WHL) early in the third period was the deciding goal, giving Canada another three-goal lead, but Sweden kept fighting back with goals by Alexander Henriksson and Tobias Liljendahl. Domi scored the insurance goal, giving Canada a 2-0-0-0 record.
Canada's drive for five, as in five straight gold medals, continue when they return to Piestany's Zimny Stadion on Wednesday for an 11:30 am est matchup against Slovakia.
