  • Finland won 4-3 in overtime when the teams last met in May 2022

Canada Form

Canada won five of their seven games as they finished second in Group B and booked their place in the quarter-finals.

The Maple Leafs opened the tournament in strong fashion as they blew out Latvia 6-0.

They followed that up with a 5-2 win against Slovenia, before beating Slovakia in a shootout and downing Kazakhstan 5-1.

Canada failed to make it five-in-a-row though, as they then fell to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of group winners Switzerland.

The Canadians then lost via a shootout out Norway, before wrapping up their group campaign with a 3-1 win over the Czech Republic.

Finland Form

Finland bounced back from a slow start to book their place in the quarter-finals with five wins in seven games.

The defending champions made a disappointing start to the tournament as they lost two of their first three games.

They sandwiched a 4-3 victory over Germany with a 4-1 defeat to the United States and a shootout loss to Sweden.

Finland were able to overcome those early disappointments though, winning four consecutive games to advance.

They beat France 5-3, Hungary 7-1 and Austria 3-1, before blowing out Denmark 7-1 in their final group game.


Finland have dominated Canada in recent years and are backed to get the better of the Maple Leafs once again.
