In the second half of the habs season, Juraj Slafkovsky was excellent.

He collected points on a regular basis and played as a 1st overall pick.

That said, the young forward continues to stand out as he enjoys a good tournament with Slovakia at the World Championship.

His country faced Poland today, and while the Poles may not be formidable on paper, Slaf was (again) a guest at the party.

He picked up an assist on his team’s third goal… because he fought his way up the ramp to retrieve the puck.

He does things the right way and the results are there:

Slovakia beat Poland 4-0 for their third consecutive victory.

In other words, things are going really well for the Slovaks at the moment… And they’re likely to win again in their next match, against France on Saturday.

It was a time for celebration in the Slovakia dressing room after the match, as one player is seen drinking a beer:

Juraj Slafkovsky now has four points (four assists) in as many games since the start of the competition.

He’s having fun, alongside his compatriots… And seeing him produce offensively on the international stage is also good news in itself.

If this continues and the forward continues to pick up points, he’ll be even more confident this summer and when he arrives at the Habs’ next training camp.

We know how confident he usually is… But when you’re able to put points on the board, it sure helps at that level.

So much the better!

In gusto

– Tomas Tatar was voted player of the game for the Slovaks.

– With good reason.

– The Voltigeurs were too strong.

– Alexander Barabanov is not expected back in San Jose.

– Another loss for the Jays.
