  • -Vintage Canuck- changed the title to [GDT] Finland vs. Canada | Group A | Aug. 15, 2022 | 3:00 PM PT




The two teams last faced off on New Year’s Eve 2020 in the prelim finale at the 2021 World Juniors in the Edmonton bubble. Dylan Cozens opened and closed the scoring, Dylan Holloway and Peyton Krebs added goals and Devon Levi made 18 saves in a 4-1 victory for Canada. The win clinched the 14th perfect preliminary round for Canada since the group-stage format was introduced in 1996.


How about Captain Canada? Mason McTavish has been outstanding in Edmonton, leading the tournament in goals (six), points (10) and plus/minus (plus-9). More than halfway to the all-time Canadian record for points in a single World Juniors (Dale McCourt and Brayden Schenn hold the mark with 18), look for the Anaheim Ducks prospect to continue have a big impact on the Canadian offence against the Finns.

Any time Finland can get a power play, there’s a good chance it will capitalize on it. In their first three games, the Finns are 8-for-13 with the man advantage. Six different players have scored while a man up, including two each from Määttä (both against the Slovaks) and Roni Hirvonen. If Canada runs into penalty trouble, look for the Finns to take advantage.



So not advisable to take too many penalties. Well, that'll be the hard part. Gotta stay disciplined..
