Report: Canada to start Binnington in bronze game

Friday, 01.04.2013 / 9:23 AM | Adam Kimelman  - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

TSN is reporting that Jordan Binnington will start in goal for Canada against Russia on Saturday (4 a.m. ET, NHLN-US, TSN) in the bronze-medal game at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Binnington, a 2011 third-round pick of the St. Louis Blues, saw his first action of the tournament in Thursday's semifinal loss to the United States. He replaced Malcolm Subban at 12:44 of the second with Canada trailing 4-0, and stopped 25 of 26 shots as Canada lost 5-1.

Binnington had dressed as Subban's backup in Canada's first five games. Playing with the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League this season, Binnington is 17-6-3 with three shutouts in 23 games. His 2.31 goals-against average is fourth in the league, and his .930 save percentage is third.
