Canada’s offence woke up in a big way in its third game of the preliminary round, pounding Switzerland for six goals in the second period en route to a 10-1 win.

Laurent Dauphin and Josh Morrissey had two goals each as Canada improved its U18 record to 3W-0L.

Carter Verhaeghe assisted on the opening goal from Zachary Nastasiuk seven minutes into the first period. Just under four minutes later, an own goal by Swiss forward Luca Fazzini as he tried to clear the puck from the net following a scrum gave Canada the 2-0 lead.

Things got worse for the Swiss in the second period, as Josh Morrissey, Morgan Klimchuk, Nicholas Baptiste, Laurent Dauphin, and Dillon Heatherington each found the back of the net to push the lead to 8-1.

Sam Reinhart added another marker in the third period, and Dauphin scored his second to close out the 10-1 victory.

Canada will play Group B leaders Sweden in their final preliminary round game, the winner of which will earn the top seed and a matchup against the fourth seed from Group A in the quarter-final.
