Team Canada started the tournament yesterday with a 14-0 win over Denmark, and they did it with Michael DiPietro in net. After the game, Team Canada coach, Tim Hunter, confirmed that DiPietro is the number one goalie:
No goalie controversy for Team 🇨🇦 at this year's #WorldJuniors— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) December 27, 2018
Coach Tim Hunter: "Mikey started the first game because we believe in Mikey. You start the season with your No. 1 goalie ... Mikey's our guy. He's going to carry the load."
Ian Scott will get the start today as Canada faces Switzerland. That game goes at 8 p.m. Toronto time.
Also on tap tomorrow, Russia plays Denmark at 4 p.m. and Sweden (and Rasmus Sandin and Pontus Holmberg) take on Slovakia at 6:30 p.m. In the late game at 10:30, Kazakhstan plays Finland.
We’ll have a review of yesterday’s action a little later today. See the post linked above for TSN channels.
