Team Canada bounced back from a tournament-opening loss to the USA to defeat Denmark 6-1 on Day 3 of the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship. The win keeps Canada in the thick of things in Group A, a group currently led by undefeated Sweden.

As in the first game of this tournament, Canada gave up the opening goal. This time around, though, they scored the next six and never let the Danes back into the game. In addition to leading on the scoreboard, Canada also led on the shot clock by a wide margin, outshooting Denmark 58-11.

Leading the way on offense for Canada were Mitch Marner (TOR), Dylan Strome (ARI), and Mathew Barzal (NYI), who each posted a goal and an assist. Other goal-scorers included Anthony Beauvillier (NYI), John Quenneville (NJD), and Lawson Crouse (FLA).

The scoring leader for Canada was Team Captain Brayden Point (TBL), who picked up┬áthree assists in this contest. Point spoke with the media following the game at Helsinki Ice Hall, a conversation that is captured in this Hockey’s Future video.
