You're on notice, NHL goalies. Mark Visentin, goalie for the Canadian World Junior team, made the save of the year during Canada's 3-0 win in the bronze medal game of the World Junior championship.

Yes, it's early in 2012, but this one might stand up over the next 12 months.

Leading by three early in the third period, Visentin got turned around by the Finnish power play unit before recovering with a ridiculous behind-the-back save to rob Finland and preserve his shutout. See for yourself in the video below.
