Curtis Lazar couldn’t help but look a year into the future.

“I want to lead,” the Ottawa Senators prospect said when he was asked about playing for Canada in the 2015 world junior championship in Toronto and Montreal.

“If I’m in this tournament again next year, I want to bring out all the details. If you have a couple of bad shifts, you’re not going to make a difference in the game and ultimately the tournament.”

Canada had its second-youngest team in the history of the event in the 2014 tournament and finished fourth when it lost against Russia in the bronze-medal game on Sunday.
