Number That May Interest Only Me: 3

Through three games at the IIHF Men's World Hockey Championships, Team Canada has won three games, which is no small feat given the upsets the tournament has already seen (Germany d. Russia; Norwary d. Sweden; and Germany d. Slovakia). In those three wins, Oilers' prospect cum star player Jordan Eberle has three goals, which is tied with several others for tops in the tournament. He was also named player of the game for Canada in their 4-3 overtime win against Switzerland.

Eberle has done all of this despite playing just 13:31 per game in the preliminary round, good for eighth on the team, but ahead of other young bucks Evander Kane (13:06), John Tavares (12:43), and Jeff Skinner (11:48). Amazingly, those last two are tied for the tournament lead with five points! Methinks Ken Hitchcock is working his matchups.

With the preliminary round coming to a close, the tournament will really start to get interesting as six teams compete for four spots in the quarterfinals. Canada's group includes Sweden, the United States, Norway, Switzerland, and France.
