Sweden vs. Switzerland (2 p.m. ET) -- Sweden coach Tomas Monten said the goaltending, led by Jesper Wallstedt (Minnesota Wild), could be the best he's had in his six tournaments. The 19-year-old led the Swedish Hockey League with a 1.98 goals-against average and was fourth with a .918 save percentage in 22 games for Lulea last season. Sweden also has a deep group of forwards that could be led by Jonathan Lekkerimaki (Vancouver Canucks), who helped Sweden win the 2022 IIHF Under-18 World Championship with a tournament-best 15 points (five goals, 10 assists) in six games. Forward Simon Knak (Nashville Predators) and defenseman Brian Zanetti (Philadelphia Flyers) will be relied upon to help Switzerland improve on its ninth-place finish from the 2021 WJC.

Latvia vs. Canada (6 p.m. ET)

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
