Brayden Point had the SO winner (which counts as a goal in IIHF tournament statistics) for Canada in their 3-2 victory over Switzerland. Canada fell behind 2-0 early in the First Period on goals by 18 year old Damien Riat and 19 year old Dario Meyer, the latter of whom plays his junior hockey in the WHL for the Edmonton Oil Kings. Undrafted 19 year old defenseman Joe Hicketts had the tying goal in the Second Period that eventually forced Overtime. Hicketts is just 5'8" tall and had 64 points in 62 games last season for Victoria in the WHL. He's a lefty shot, if you were wondering.
