Report: Nugent-Hopkins to play for Canada at World Championship
Despite his team's struggles, Nugent-Hopkins has had a stellar offensive season, recording 22 goals and 45 points in 60 games thus far.
Unsurprisingly, he has found further success playing on Connor McDavid's left wing lately, picking up 15 points in his last 16 contests. The two could continue to develop their chemistry if McDavid were to accept an invite as well.
The 24-year-old is no stranger to success on the international stage:
