Projected as the No. 2 overall selection at next month’s NHL Draft, Jack Eichel showed why he’s so highly touted on Sunday at the World Hockey Championship.

With the Americans already up 1-0, Eichel won the puck battle against Petr Caslava before setting up Trevor Lewis for the game’s second goal.

Eichel now has two goals and five assists in 10 games at the tournament.
