The Arizona Coyotes have recalled Barrett Hayton after the forward helped Canada win a gold medal at the current world junior hockey championship.

The Coyotes lent Hayton to Canada's group for the under-20 competition. Hayton was named captain of the group and scored the game-tying goal in the 3rd period of Canada's 4-3 win over Russia in Sunday's gold-medal game.

The six-foot-one, 190-pound native of Kitchener, Ont., tape-recorded 6 goals and 6 helps over 7 games in Ostrava, Czech Republic, finishing 2nd in scoring for the competition.

The 19-year-old has an objective and 3 helps in 14 video games with the Coyotes this season. Hayton became the seventh youngest gamer (19 years, 123 days) in Coyotes history to make his NHL launching on Oct. 10 against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Hayton was originally chosen by the Coyotes in the first round, 5th overall, at the 2018 NHL draft.
