The annual International World Junior tournament is taking place in Toronto, and Team USA picked up a big 3-1 victory over Canada, winning group play.

Wild prospect Jordan Greenway – a second-round pick by Minnesota in 2015 – had a big game too, with a goal and an assist.

Here's a video of his goal that gave USA a 2-0 lead.

Team USA got off to a hot start, scoring on two of its first three shots against Canada.

Greenway is playing college hockey at Boston University and has 16 points in 16 games this season for the Terriers.

He's not the only Wild prospect on the team either as Luke Kunin – Minnesota's first-round pick in this year's draft – is the team's captain.

St. Cloud State men's hockey coach Bob Motzko is also coaching Team USA at this year's tournament.
