UFA, RUSSIA - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been a man among boys here at the World Junior Championship.

Not that you would expected anything less from Canada's captain, who spent last year in the NHL with the Edmonton Oilers after being taken first overall in 2011.

It's one thing to have expectations.

It's another to see them fulfilled.
