Seven of the eight Preds who began the day with a quarterfinal contest at the World Championship are moving on.
The United States, Canada, Sweden and Switzerland were all victorious in their Thursday outings, advancing to the semifinals on Saturday to determine who will play for gold and bronze on Sunday. Eeli Tolvanen is the only Predators skater not moving on as Finland was defeated by the Swiss on Thursday.
Predators players will face off against one another to determine those medal matchups, with Nick Bonino (USA) taking on Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson and Mattias Ekholm (Sweden) in the first contest of the day on Saturday. Then, it'll be Kyle Turris (Canada) meeting Roman Josi and Kevin Fiala (Switzerland) in the late game.
