Need a little hockey fix? Check out this sweet clip that Canada’s World Juniors Twitter account posted:
That’s Blackhawks center Kirby Dach on the pretty pass. Believe it or not, Dach still qualifies for the World Juniors as he doesn’t turn 20 until Jan. 21, 2021, a couple of weeks after the tournament ends.
Canada won the gold medal at last year’s World Juniors tournament, but Dach wasn’t on the roster as he was playing for the Blackhawks at the time. With the start of the next NHL season still up in the air, there’s a chance Dach could participate this year.
Dach was impressive in his rookie campaign for the Blackhawks, notching eight goals and 15 assists in 64 games. He chipped in a goal and five assists in the playoffs as well.
