Regina Pats superstar Connor Bedard scored the game-winner – to go with another score and an assist – to add to his tournament record.

The 17-year-old is now the all-time leader in points and goals for Canada at the World Juniors with 34 and 16 respectively. He also holds the record for the most points and assists in a single tournament by a Canadian, as well as the most points by a Canadian player under the age of 18.

Arizona Coyotes winger Dylan Guenther has five goals and two assists for seven points in the tournament so far, while Dallas Stars prospect Logan Stankoven has added two goals and seven assists for nine points. Thomas Milic has taken over the goaltending position for Canada and continues to play well, posting a 1.69 average in four games.

They’ll face a leading American team that put up a dominating 11-1 performance in the quarterfinal against Germany, including a hat trick from Arizona Coyotes prospect Logan Cooley. The 18-year-old is now second in goals and points at the tournament, behind Bedard. St. Louis Blues prospect Jimmy Snuggerud is tied with Cooley for second and just one point behind his teammate.

Top goalie draft prospect Trey Augustine also impressed, posting a 1.36 average in four games.

It’s the first time Canada and the United States have met at the World Juniors since the Americans won 2-0 in Edmonton in 2021 to claim their fifth title.
