1) Two blowouts and one shootout outcome highlighted Day 3 of the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship in Edmonton.

Finland 4 - Czech Republic 3 (Group A, SO)

In a seesaw game that saw Finland trail 2-0, score the next three goals and then being unable to nail it down in regulation against Czechia, the Finns skated off with a 4-3 (1-0) victory via shootout on Thursday. Roby Järventie scored in regulation as well as the winning shootout goal for the Finns.

Canada 11 - Slovakia 1

Team Canada jumped out to a 4-0 lead and expanded it to 8-0 through two periods on their way to an 11-1 shellacking of Slovakia on Thursday. Mason McTavish led the way for the Canadians with four goals and two assists. Flyers prospect Tyson Foerster (12:09 TOI, two shots on goal) chipped in a secondary assist on Canada's fourth goal. Elliot Desnoyers (12:13 TOI, two shots on goal, 4-for-7 on faceoffs) did not record a point.

USA 7 - Switzerland 1

In a game that was scoreless until nearly the six-minute mark of the second period, Team USA finally forged ahead and went on to earn a 7-1 win over Switzerland. Carter Mazur had two goals and an assist for the Americans. Brian Zanetti (minus-two) skated 12:38 of ice time for the Swiss side.
