Team OHL wins 3-1 in the 3rd game of the Canada-Russia Series. 0:28

Pavel Shen put Russia on the board in the last minute of the first, but OHL netminder Mike DiPietro stopped everything the rest of the way.

Hayton, the No. 5 overall pick by Arizona at the 2018 NHL draft, added an insurance goal midway through the second on a one-man rush. The 20-year-old centre crossed the blue line and toe dragged the puck past defenceman Artyom Volkov before deking to the backhand an lifting the it over a sprawled-out Daniil Tarasov in the Russian net.

DiPietro made 18 saves for the win as Tarasov stopped 20-of-23 shots in a losing cause.

The win gives the Canadian Hockey league a 2-1-0 record in the six-game Canada Russia Series after the Western Hockey League team split the first two games in B.C.
