After a day off on Friday, Canada is back in action tonight as the host country gets set to square off against Czechia at 6 p.m. ET.
Canada is coming off an 11-1 thumping of Slovakia on Thursday. It was the Mason McTavish show, as he tied a Canadian World Juniors record with four goals in the game, adding two assists as well.
Connor Bedard, Will Cuylle, Brennan Othmann, Logan Stankoven, Lukas Cormier and Joshua Roy all added multi-point games as well. Dylan Garand got the win in his 2022 World Juniors debut, as Canada improved to 2-0-0-0 in Group A — the only team so far to record two wins in regulation.
Czechia has been on both sides of one-goal contests to begin their tournament. After defeating Slovakia 5-4 in the opener, the team suffered a shootout loss to Finland in its last contest. Jan Mysak has been leading the way for Czechia, with three goals and an assist through two games so far at the tournament.
The Sporting News will provide live updates and highlights from the Canada-Czechia matchup at the 2022 World Juniors.

Kent Johnson tracker
Each game, TSN will highlight one player on Team Canada to follow along with during the matchup.
For the Czechia game, we will follow Kent Johnson. The Canada assistant captain has just one assist so far at the tournament, but we've seen him use his hands to create opportunities for himself and teammates multiple times during the World Juniors.
The No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 draft by the Blue Jackets, Johnson's skill with the puck on the stick is what makes him so dangerous. The results haven't been there yet at this tournament in terms of points, but Johnson is bound to find the back of the net.
