Ryan O’Reilly will open the regular season with a new accomplishment under his belt as Team Canada has won the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.
Centering Joe Thornton and Matt Duchene, O’Reilly played a strong role on the team, despite not registering a point. His work ethic didn’t go unnoticed:

O’Reilly received the opportunity to play after Tyler Seguin went down with an injury. A few weeks later and the 25-year-0ld has played in a tournament he’ll never forget.
While he won’t play in tonight’s preseason contest, we should expect to see O’Reilly at training camp in the next couple of days.
