The potential top overall pick in the upcoming NHL Draft may have just suffered a serious setback. Alexis Lafrenière, one of the elite talents playing junior hockey in Canada, left the game with a leg injury after a collision with a Russian goaltender. Check it out:
Lafrenière was playing for Team Canada during this match, and teams around the NHL will be keeping a close eye on any potential developments. The young forward notched 70 points in only 32 games during his season as a part of Rimouski Oceanic in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Always hard to see a young player with so much potential go down like this. Hopefully it's not too serious, and we'll see Lafrenière on the ice again soon.
