Canada falls 2-1 in OT to Finland

Team Canada fell 2-1 in overtime to Finland on Wednesday in the first game of USA Hockey’s annual world junior summer tournament in Plymouth, Michigan.

Travis Konecny had Canada’s only goal, which came in the first period. Saint John Sea Dogs defenseman Thomas Chabot hit the post late in the third period.
Chabot was paired with Noah Juulsen again. The two were paired together on Monday evening during Team Canada’s Red-White game in Toronto.

Sea Dogs forward Mathieu Joseph was also in Canada’s lineup on Wednesday, starting the game on a line with Anthony Beauvillier and Michael McLeod.

Canada’s world junior hopefuls take on Sweden on Friday afternoon. They then play the United States on Saturday.

At the Red-White game held on Monday, Joseph had two goals (one being an empty netter) while Chabot added an empty netter.

Meanwhile, Chabot told TSN that he’d like to start the season with the Ottawa Senators, obviously.
