Kyle Turris and Dante Fabbro earned silver medals with Canada at the 2019 IIHF World Championship in Sunday's final contest.

The Canadians fell to Finland by a 3-1 score in the championship game.

Turris, who captained the Canadians at the 2019 Worlds, had a stellar tournament and finished with four goals and 10 points in 10 games. Fabbro, who began the tournament as Canada's seventh defenseman, worked his way onto a pairing with Shea Theodore and posted one goal and three points overall.

It's the first medal for Turris and Fabbro at the World Championship; Turris previously won gold with Canada at the World Junior Championship, while Fabbro has gold and silver medals with Canada from the World Juniors.

The Predators had five representatives at the World Championship this year. In addition to the Canadian duo, Roman Josi and Yannick Weber played for Switzerland, while Mattias Ekholm represented Sweden.
