Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is enjoying his rare opportunity to shine at the World Junior Championship.
"It's a lot different but it's a lot of fun," he said. "Anytime you get the chance to represent Canada, it's going to be fun and it's a unique opportunity for me, so I'm just trying to embrace it as much as I can." Nugent-Hopkins would be playing for the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL if there wasn't a lockout. His teammates and coaches are glad to have him and they have been blown away by his skill. RNH leads the tournament in scoring with 11 points in just four games.
