Reinhart should be a huge asset on Canadian penalty kill at World Juniors

According to the Canadian Press on Monday, Team Canada improved to 2-0-1 at the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championship in Malmo, Sweden with a 5-3 victory over Slovakia.

However one major area of concern for the Canadian team is penalty killing. In Monday's victory, all three of Slovakia's goals came with the man advantage.

The Canadians will get Griffin Reinhart, the son of former Calgary Flame defenseman Paul Reinhart, back in the lineup on Tuesday, and the bottom line is the timing could not be any better. Reinhart, who was suspended for the first three games of the tournament because of an infraction last year, should solidify the Canadian team when they are a man short.

It is also a very important game for Team Canada who needs to beat the United States in regulation to finish in first place in Pool A.

Canada is however guaranteed a spot in the quarterfinals which will commence on Thursday.
