Fabbro assisted on Canada's first goal of the day to give him three points and a +9 rating at the Worlds to date. Turris has three goals and nine points, as well as a +9 rating as he continues to captain Canada in the tournament.

Thursday's loss sees Josi finish the World Championship with one goal and six points to go along with a +8 rating; Weber recorded an assist at the tournament.

Later in the day on Thursday, Preds defenseman Mattias Ekholm and Sweden were defeated by Finland in overtime to see their run come to an end. Ekholm finished with two assists during the tournament for the Swedes.

The semifinals of the World Championship come on Saturday with Canada taking on the Czech Republic and Russia facing Finland.
