Team Canada forward Jayce Hawryluk may not have produced a great deal of offense at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, but he picked the right game to get himself on the scoresheet.

The Canadian team brought home yet another gold medal from the Ivan Hlinka after defeating Team USA 4-0 in that tournament's gold medal game. Hawryluk scored his lone goal and point of the tournament in that game, potting Canada's second goal en route to his team's victory.

Hawryluk turned in a productive rookie season in the WHL as a member of the Brandon Wheat Kings. In 61 games for that club, the Roblin, MB native netted 18 goals and added 25 assists for 43 points. Hawryluk is another WHL prospect that has received early attention from the NHL's Central Scouting as he was listed among the CSS Futures prospects for the 2013-14 season.

Following Canada's gold medal win, Hawryluk spoke about the win with Hockey's Future for this HF video.
