GDT: World Junior Hockey Championships - Canada vs. Switzerland

Alright, game 2. This is another one that should be an easy win, but it’s never smart to write a team off before playing them. From what I recall, the Swiss generally play a tight defensive game as well. So the score may be fairly close. Canada has played one game thus far, a 16-0 drubbing over Latvia. The Swiss fell 3-0 to the Americans.

Don’t forget about the Battle Of Alberta GDT, one post lower.

POST-GAME RANT


Just a quick post game rant. I watched the game, and Jordan Eberle played fantastic. Apparently I’m not the only one that thought so. Despite teammate Brandon McMillan recording the hat trick, Eberle won player of the game! Eberle finished the game with 1 goal, 4 assists, and was +2. Congrats Jordan!
