Canada vs Switzerland live updates, highlights from 2022 World Juniors

2nd period

19:59 — As the second period begins, it is revealed that Ridly Greig is out for the remainder of the competition. He was hit in the middle of the first by Vincent Despont and appeared to be tormenting his left arm. He went down the tunnel and did not return. It seemed like a fairly obvious interference from Despont, but it went uncalled.

End of 1st period: Canada 4, Switzerland 2

19:42 — Not a bad phase for Canada, not a great one either, but the hosts still lead 4-2 after a third. There are certainly some concerns about Canada and their defensive awareness in their own zone, but they are so good offensively that it hasn’t hurt them (yet). Logan Stankoven was all over the ice and was by far the best player to score and assist.

7:40 p.m. – GOAL! With 8.2 seconds left, Switzerland score their second goal of the game when Attilio Biasca hits Garand on the blocker side. Canada had defenders around Biasca but they didn’t cover him allowing him to catch a clean pass from Fahrni and get a shot from Garand. A huge goal for the Swiss.

19:36 — Welcome to the game Kevin Pasche who makes a sensational stop at Brennan Othmann to negate another Canadian goal. A nice passing game from Canada that Othmann just can’t finish.

7:34 p.m. – GOAL! Floodgates open as Nathan Gaucher smacks Patenaude’s pads at a loose puck and it finds its way into the net. That’s just poor rebound control from Patenaude, who can’t control a pretty easy shot from Elliot Desnoyers that was on the ice. Kevin Pasche replaces Patenaude in the net. There are about three minutes left in the first and it’s 4-1.

19:30 — GATE! Stankoven makes it 3-1 for Canada when he collects his own rebound and shoots it into the empty net. Another gruesome turnover by the Swiss leads to Stankoven with puck on the stick on point. His first shot rattles the post but goes right past Stankoven, slamming into the net and tapping it in. The goal came just after Stankoven set up Foerster nicely at the back door, but Foerster missed high.

7:25 p.m. – GOAL! Jack Thompson gives Canada the lead back as he slams home a loose puck after a Ronan Seeley shot. Seeley’s shot was blocked and deflected to the right where Thompson was unattended. Mats Alge had blocked a Thompson One timer earlier in the shift and was working. He was supposed to cover for Thompson but was in a lot of pain from the shot and couldn’t get in in time.

19:24 — Speaking of poor turnovers, the Swiss just had their worst of the day as a pass back to no one sends Stankoven all by himself. The puck was too far in front of him and he had to tumble a shot, which was denied by Patenaude.

19:23 — A strong power move from Ridley Gregig, who snatches the puck from the Swiss defender, slices at the post and tries to plug it in with five holes on Patenaude but he stays outside.

19:20 — A neutral zone turnover by Canada results in Josh Fahrni coming in with a 2 on 1, getting a great look but shooting Garand straight in the gut. Canada looked good but again they have problems with the puck in their end of the ice.

19:15 — Canada couldn’t have asked for a better start with the Foerster goal… and couldn’t have reacted worse afterwards. Kudos to the Swiss for the immediate response and applying offensive pressure, but Canada don’t seem comfortable in their own zone. They didn’t have to play much in their defensive zone and we’ve seen it at times when they’re not fully structured.

7:12 p.m. – GOAL! And just like that, it’s a draw game. Simon Knak has a nice tip on a shot from Brian Zanetti jumping onto the ice and Dylan Garand. 1:1 in less than three minutes.

7:09 p.m. – GOAL! That didn’t last long. Just 67 seconds into the game and Tyson Foerster hits the back of the net, his third straight game by a goal. Good feed from Logan Stankoven to find Foerster on the right and he fires it past Noah Patenaude.


6 p.m. — Interesting decision by Dave Cameron as he swaps Brennan Othmann and Will Cuylle. Othmann had run with Connor Bedard and Mason McTavish and had six points in just three games (he was scratched in the opener). Cuylle offers a little more defense, but don’t be surprised if Cameron makes an in-game switch when it doesn’t work.
