Patrick Thoresen.

5 assists in 4 games in the Vancouver olympics.

The topscorer after the first 3 games in 2010 whc (with 6 points in 3 games vs Sweden, Czech rep and France. Two points in each game. He was the topscorer after the preliminary rounds if im not mistaken.)

And the topscorer so far in this whc (18 points. 2 points in the QF vs Russia, 1 point vs the czech rep and 1 point vs Russia).

Edit: I also wanna ad that Thoresen is good defensively. Its not only about scoring, but also about helping the defence. And he always does a very good job in his own zone (blocking shots, working hard along the boards etc).
