Finland's top five-man unit at the 2014 World Junior Championship was very effective, with that group posting 39 points in total over that country's seven-game run to the gold medal.

One of the main contributors from that group was forward Artturi Lehkonen, who served as an assistant captain for his country at this WJC. Lehkonen picked up two goals and two assists in six games while finishing with a +7 rating.

Back in Finland, Lehkonen plays for KalPa in Liiga, that country's top league. Now in his third season of competing at that level, the 18-year-old has posted solid numbers so far in 2013-14, potting seven goals and 13 assists for 20 points in 33 games.

Lehkonen, a Montreal Canadiens prospect, spoke with Hockey's Future following his country's gold medal win at the 2014 WJC, a conversation captured in this HF video.
