Are the Devils sure they're set with Jack Hughes as the No. 1 overall pick in the NHL Draft. Like, are they really, really sure? Kaapo Kakko is making his bid to potentially usurp his fellow future NHL rookie, as the Finland youngster scored three goals against Slovakia to lead his team to their second win of Worlds'.
The first goal was the most impressive, as Kakko fought through the majority of the Slovakia defense to score on a wicked backhand.
This nasty wrister from the point proves Kakko's range as a player. He truly is a threat from anywhere on the ice.
The third goal, however, was the cherry on top, as Kakko made an empty-netter to solidify Finland's result and register a hattrick.
