A night after tying a record for most points in a game by a Canadian player, Connor Bedard will be back on the ice with his new-look line, this time taking on an even more defensively-challenged team.

Austria has surrendered 20 goals in two games played, just not at a level in 2023 to compete on this stage. They struggle to even generate shots let alone get scoring chances, and it could be another big night for Canada if they decide to go for an encore in Halifax.
