Travis Konecny juuuuust misses goal, gets robbed by Petr Mrazek at Worlds

Assistant coach Dave Hakstol didn’t scratch him!

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.
