WJC REPORT: Canada, Sweden on a roll

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers
Two Oilers prospects are taking part in the 2015 World Junior Hockey Championships in Toronto and Montreal. We are providing daily reports and links to interviews and highlights through to the end of the tournament.

We will also provide updates on the progress of draft eligible players at the tournament.

CANADA 4, GERMANY 0

MONTREAL - For the second straight game, Canada did not allow a goal by the opposition. However, this time they had more of a battle on their hands in a 4-0 victory over Germany.

Oilers prospect, defenceman Darnell Nurse, had three shots on goal and an even rating in the win. 

Canada opened a 2-0 lead after one period on goals by Connor McDavid and former Edmonton Oil Kings centre Curtis Lazar. The game would stay 2-0 until about 10 minutes remained in the third period.

In the third, Max Domi and Madison Bowey scored.

Shots on goal were 31-17 for Canada. 

SWEDEN 5, DENMARK 1

TORONTO - Sweden won their second game at the World Juniors in as many outings, this one a 5-1 victory over Denmark.

Oilers prospect, defenceman William Lagesson, had a very strong game with an assist and a +3 rating. 

The Swedes scored three goals in the opening period and again 13 seconds into the middle frame to take a 4-0 lead over Denmark.

The Danes responded 48 seconds later to make it 4-1 but a late second period goal by 2015 draft-eligible defenceman Sebastian Aho would ice this outcome.
