Team Canada continued showing its offensive prowess on Monday in a 7-1 win over Denmark at Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning, Denmark, during preliminary round action at the 2018 IIHF World Championship.

Colorado Avalanche forward Tyson Jost collected a rebound from a Darnell Nurse (Edmonton Oilers) shot and sent it into the Danes' net with 1:50 remaining in the matchup to finish the scoring for Canada.

Jost played 12:35 in the contest and recorded two shots on net. The 20-year-old has three goals in two games during the tournament.

Connor McDavid (Edmonton Oilers) had three assists in the victory and was one of five Canadians to record a multi-point game.

Canada was 2-for-3 on the power play and 3-for-3 on the penalty kill, while goaltender Curtis McElhinney (Toronto Maple Leafs) stopped 14 of Denmark's 15 shots in the win.

Team Canada is second in Group B with a 2-0-1-0 record (seven points) and has outscored its opponents 21-6 through three contests. Canada has the next two days off before returning to action on Thursday against Norway.

The Avs' Sven Andrighetto (Switzerland) and Pavel Francouz (Czech Republic) will face each other on Tuesday, while Mikko Rantanen and Finland take on Norway.
