The Russian crew is now set to compete for bronze, whereas the Canadians will attempt to defend their gold on Tuesday night time.
Canada beat Russia 5-0 in the 2021 World Junior Ice Hockey Championship semifinals.
The recreation in Edmonton, Canada, ended 5-0 (3-0, 1-0, 1-0) in favour of the event host.
The objectives for the Canadians had been scored by Alex Newhoek (1st minute), Connor McMichael (eleventh), Cole Perfetti (sixteenth), Braden Schneider (twenty fifth) and Dylan Cozens (59th).
Newhook suffered an harm in Canada’s remaining preliminary-round recreation towards Finland on 31 December, sparking fears he wouldn’t be capable of return for the match towards Russia. However, he did play and scored the primary objective simply 59 seconds into the sport.
Later the United States will play Finland in the second semifinal. The remaining of the event and the sport for the third place will happen Tuesday.
