Last year, the then 17-year-old boy from Newmarket, Ont, scored an assist in seven games in limited time when Canada won gold, Byfield entered the game on Tuesday with an assist in three games in 2021 After 60 minutes against the Swiss, he scored six more points with two goals and four helpers when the Canadians won easily with a 10-0 final score

“Definitely at camp, no more hockey for eight to nine months. I almost had to get involved again,” said Byfield, the youngest skater in Team Canada at 18, after the victory. “Finally found my position and everything is fine Happened tonight I think myself and [Jakob Pelletier] had some good connections to some goals and got the jumps “

On that first goal, he added: “Definitely a huge relief.Not scoring a goal last year definitely hurt a bit but I wouldn’t take that back for anything. We still came home with a gold medal, that is the goal That’s the same here. It’s just nice to achieve a goal and contribute as much as possible. Definitely happy with it “

“[Byfield is] a great guy, a good skater, also a good sniper,” Pelletier said. “For me, it’s an absolute pleasure to play with. We kept things simple and it works for us”

Before the game, Canada had two very different wins. Boxing Day featured a one-sided win over a depleted German squad, while Sunday was a narrow win over a more formidable opponent in Slovakia.This competition started like two days ago when the Canadians could only score one goal with 14 strokes in the first half – Philip Tomasino’s fourth tournament It was a period of penalties for both sides, so dynamism was of the utmost importance

But as the game shifted to the middle frame, the floodgates opened Canada scored four points in the second half before scoring another five in the final verse.In the end, 14 skaters collected at least one point, led by Byfield and Pelletier (two goals, assist), while Connor McMichael, Cole Perfetti, Dylan Cozens and Ryan Suzuki each scored one goal and one assist. In total, the team put 52 shots into the net against QMJHL netminder Nathan Patenaude

“A lot has happened in this game, it doesn’t look like [it], but a really good, strong start,” said Team Canada coach Andre Tourigny. “I have two power games, fighting these two power games that are taking our momentum down , and we were nervous from then on. Came back the second, played really, really solidly That was without a doubt our best time

“I’m happy with the growth of our team during this game The way we recovered from the tough start or tough second half of the first period The way our power play on the first two power games The way we recovered after loosing up a little. That was a really good game for us to learn about ourselves and get better as a group and get on the same page “

In the backend, Devon Levi was again a reassuring presence between the pipes as he turned aside all 15 shots he faced in three games, he stopped 40 of 42 shots
