Canada's Golden Boy Heading Back To The Coyotes

What a tournament for the young prospect.

Dylan Guenther capped off a fantastic 2023 IIHF World Juniors tournament with an overtime winner over the Czech Republic to give Canada back-to-back gold medals, sending Halifax and the rest of the nation into a frenzy of delight.

Guenther also got Canada off to a quick lead on Thursday night with a beautiful one-timer bardown thirteen minutes into the game.

The nineteen-year-old top prospect finished the tournament with seven goals and three assists over seven games, putting him in a six-way tie for the most points in the event.

Now, Guenther is returning to the Arizona Coyotes, who drafted him with the ninth overall pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

The six-foot-two, 175-pound prospect has three goals and 11 points in 21 games with the Coyotes this season. He could still be returned to junior hockey at any time but, for now, he'll remain with Arizona.
