Finland expunged Canada in tragic style in the 20-19 IIHF World Juniors from the quarter-final round — also around Saturday, Canada is going to have the occasion to get back the favour from the winners, that amount of time from the semi-final.
Alexis Lafreniere along with also his teammates progressed into the semi-final round with a devastating 61 triumph over Slovakia on Thursday. Lafreniere, who’d overlooked Canada’s ultimate two set point matches owing to leg damage, potted lone target and 1 assist in his return to actions. Captain Barrett Hayton broke in 2 goals and 1 support since Canada transferred a single step nearer into a golden trophy.
