When Travis Konecny was named to Team Canada’s entry at the 2017 World Championships last month, we joked that Canada assistant coach Dave Hakstol was already lobbying to make him a healthy scratch.
Guess those lobbying efforts failed!
I know a lot of us were down on Konecny at times this year because ... I don’t know, really. I guess it’s because watching Flyers hockey was just generally a downer of an experience in 2016-17.
But he’s 19, and he’s playing at the World Championships, and he’s really, really good. This should have been a goal. Petr Mrazek is dead to me.
