NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 22: Anthony Beauvillier /

New York Islanders forward Anthony Beauvillier found out that he will be playing for Team Canada in the 2018 IIHF World Championship.

Anthony Beauvillier finished his season as hot as any other member of the New York Islanders. In the Islanders final nine games of the season, Anthony Beauvillier scored seven goals bumping his goal total up to 21.

It was an impressive number, especially when you consider he had just four goals through 31 games before he was sent down in January. He’d finish the remaining 40 games with 17 goals over that span.

Apparently, the Islanders weren’t the only ones who noticed Beauvillier’s hot streak. Beau will be playing for Team Canada at the IIHF World Tournament.

He’ll be joining his teammates Mathew Barzal, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Pulock as well. Maybe we’ll see a reunion of the Beauvillier – Barzal – Eberle line at the international level. That’d be an interesting dynamic for sure.

Although selfishly, I would like to see Barzal and Connor McDavid get some ice time together. Can you imagine those up-ice rushes? My goodness.
