Jonah Gadjovich (VAN, 2017 2nd round pick) scored twice for Canada and OHL points leader Jordan Kyrou (STL, 2016 2nd round pick) racked up a 3-point night, while Colton Point (DAL, 2016 5th round pick) pitched a 20-save shutout against the Slovakian WJC squad. Taylor Raddysh continued his strong early tourney showing, notching a power play marker, as the Canadian offense threw 52 shots at the Slovak goalie from St. Cloud State, David Hrenak (undrafted). Cal Foote saw his ice time blossom to almost 20 minutes amid a couple of injuries to Canada’s backline. Canada gets a day off on Thursday before the highly hyped first ever outdoor WJC game pitting Group A rivals USA vs Canada at New Era Field in what the weatherman predicts to be very cold and possibly snowy game time conditions.
