What TV channel is Canada vs. Slovakia on today? Schedule, time for 2022 World Juniors game


Less than 24 hours after Canada opened its 2022 World Junior Championship with a victory, the host country is back at it again Thursday with a matchup against Slovakia.

Canada began its journey to a gold medal by beating Latvia 5-2 on Wednesday. Five different players scored, and Connor Bedard, Mason McTavish, William Dufour and Ridly Greig each recorded two points. Sebastian Cossa got the win in net.

Latvia made things a lot more interesting than expected. After Bedard opened the scoring, it tied game with a goal late in the first period. Canada then built a 4-1 lead after two periods thanks to two power-play goals, but Latvia fought back with a goal on the man advantage of their own in the third period.

Dufour’s tally with five minutes remaining gift Canada breathing room. Now the focus shifts to Slovakia.
