Timo Meier and the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies are tied 2-2 with the London Knights after regulation of the 2016 Memorial Cup Final. While the Huskies led 2-1 with eight minutes to go, Meier picked up an assist on Rouyn-Noranda's first goal of the game to tie things at one.

You've gotta see this one.

Meier shows strength to carry the puck around the London net and then delivers an absolutely perfect backhand pass to Perron who taps the puck in to make it a 1-1 game.

Overtime of the Final, which pits the QMJHL champion against the OHL champion, is on NHL Network now. Assuming you're reading this at around 4:15 p.m. PDT and not...well, any time after that. I'm sorry.

The Sharks drafted Meier in the first round (ninth overall) in 2015. He started the season with the Halifax Mooseheads but was traded to Rouyn-Noranda during the season. That trade appears to have paid off as the Huskies cruised through the QMJHL playoffs and are on the verge of winning the Memorial Cup, too.
