CALGARY - Jordan Binnington's foes in the Ontario Hockey League can't help but get that feeling when the lanky goaltender strolls by.
One of four goaltenders competing for a job at Canada's junior team selection camp, Binnington has been doing a number on OHL opponents for the past three seasons with the Owen Sound Attack. Now he could be on the cusp of getting an opportunity to take that act to the international stage.
"He shut us out (a 36-save performance on Nov. 21) and he made some unbelievable saves," said Barrie Colts forward Mark Scheifele, a Winnipeg Jets prospect who is a lock to make Canada's roster.
