Lucas Cormier gets an assist in another win for Canada

Acadian Lucas Cormier scored at least one point in the third game in a row, Mason McTavish scored twice and Canada maintained their perfect record in the World Junior Hockey Championship with a 5-1 victory over the Czech Republic on Saturday.

Cormier, a Saint-Marie-de-Kent player, provided an assist for the third Canadian goal, Ridley Gregg. In three matches so far in the tournament, the Vegas Golden Knights have scored one goal in addition to being a partner to three others.

Kent Johnson caught the eye in the first half with a Michigan-style goal, carrying the disc through the air on the blade of his stick, 19 minutes into the first half.

“I’ve been doing this maneuver since I was 14, I think,” Johnson said. “Now it’s something I can use.”

The goal gave Canada a 2-1 lead after the first half.

“That’s a big goal, a really good one,” said Johnson, who also provided a assist in the third half.

“I guess that’s the period I’ve known as well. I think I would have been very happy if the disc had gone off a skate as well.

The match was met with warm applause from the audience of 5135 spectators at Rogers Place. On the ice, one of Johnson’s sons, Logan Stankoven, raised his gloves over his head and shouted, “Oh my God!”

“This is probably one of the best goals I’ve seen, frankly Michigan,” said Canada captain Mason McTavish, who leads the tournament with 10 points, including six.

“He made the move quickly and at the end of the first period the ice was not in great shape. It was something special to see. I will definitely watch him again, many times.”
