According to the Hockey Canada website, Sam Reinhart, son of former Calgary Flame Paul Reinhart, notched a goal and an assist on Thursday as Canada beat Germany 7-2 in Canada's opening game of the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championship in Malmo, Sweden.

Sam Reinhart scored Canada's fifth goal in the second period while Germany was in the process of making a line change. The line change was so bad according to Ray Ferraro of TSN, that four Germans were going off at the same time when the puck reached Reinhart, who easily scored on the rebound from his breakaway.

Sam Reinhart also notched an assist on Canada's 4-2 goal off the stick of Bo Horvat with 1:31 left in the first period.

Sam Reinhart was one of five Canadian players to have a multi-point game on Thursday. Anthony Mantha recorded a hat trick, Jonathan Drouin had a quiet three assists, while Connor McDavid and Derrick Pouliot had two assists each.

Sam's brother Griffin meawhile was serving his second game of his four game suspension given to him for high-sticking American forward Vince Trocheck at the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championship in Ufa, Russia.

Canada will next play the Czech Republic Saturday afternoon.

Paul Reinhart played for the Atlanta/Calgary Flames from 1979-1988.
