If the Canada’s first two warm-up games are any indication, Tyson Jost is going to make a name for himself during the 2017 U-20 World Junior Championship. The 18-year-old from St. Albert, drafted tenth overall in the first round by the Colorado Avalanche this past summer, has now tallied four points—three goals and one assist—in two exhibition games against Finland and the Czech Republic.

No, these games don’t technically mean anything yet, but he’s standing out among some of the very best junior talent in the world, which is wonderful news for an Avalanche team desperate for young forward talent next season.

If you don’t have access to Canadian television and want to catch a glimpse, check out the videos below.
