It's unusual to see an NHL player without a contract playing in IIHF World Championships, but it's hard to blame Oliver Bjorkstrand.

After all, the Columbus Blue Jackets right winger was born in Herning, Denmark, one of the group play sites for this year's IIHF Worlds. And just like Jeezy did, Bjorkstrand's putting on for his city (and country), as he helped his squad take down international powerhouse Finland earlier today by a score of 3-2. 

That's far from the only Bjorkstrand highlight – he also had an absolutely sick toe drag that the IIHF Twitter account posted as a part of a longer showcase of Bjorkstrand's tournament so far. 

This all goes to show that Bjorkstrand's not sitting back after a career-high 40 point season. A restricted free agent, he should be due for a solid deal after finishing his entry-level contract.
