WORLD JUNIORS: Gut, Zellweger both score in 6-3 Canada win over Czechia

EDMONTON, Alb. — Michal Gut and Olen Zellweger both found the back of the net for their respective countries in a World Junior Championship battle heavily laden with Everett Silvertips, as Canada bested Czechia 6-3 at Rogers Place.

Gut tallied for Czechia to tie the game at one 7:42 into the first period, fielding a cross-slot pass and tapping a shot past Canadian goaltender Dylan Garand. He later assisted on a Stanislav Svozil goal to give Czechia a 3-1 lead at 12:23 in the first.

Canada would rally back and eventually take a 5-3 lead by way of an Owen Power hat trick. Zellweger would ice the game at 13:22 for Canada, wiring a wrist shot past Jakub Malek for his first goal of the tournament.

Gut would finish as the only Czech player with multiple points in the game. Zellweger ended with three shots-on-goal and a +1 rating to go along with his goal. Ronan Seeley also logged 16:38 TOI for Canada.

Silvertips head coach and general manager Dennis Williams earned his first win as an assistant coach for Hockey Canada.
