Artturi Lehkonen can't stop scoring at the World Juniors summer camp

Lehkonen and Teravainen make quite the tandem. - Bruce Bennett

The chemistry between Lehkonen and Blackhawks prospect Teravainen is quite obvious.

It seems to be a daily occurrence during the Lake Placid summer camp in preparation for the World Junior Hockey Championships that newly drafted Canadiens prospect Artturi Lehkonen scores, usually with an assist from Blackhawks prospect from the 2012 NHL Entry Draft Teuvo Teravainen.

Leading the pre-tournament in goals isn't a magnificent accomplishment, but it's given Lehkonen some buzz among Habs fans who were, in some cases, worried about his concussion history and size.

It's worth noting that Lehkonen has been playing against men since he was 16 years old in the SM-Liiga, and he's produced at a similar rate to his linemate (on Team Finland, they play for different teams in the SML) Teravainen.

On the other side was Michael McCarron, who went pointless for the second straight game and now has one goal and one assist in four games. He showed flashes in the first period but didn't draw many mentions after, although he did get hit in the face and had to leave the ice for a bit, but the injury isn't serious.

Sebastian Collberg is still out for the Canada game beginning shortly, but Charles Hudon draws in, which is good news for his back. Jacob De La Rose is also in for Sweden.
