2022 World Juniors Day 2 Schedule and game preview

Austria vs. Finland (Edmonton, 2:00 PM)

The debutants Austria are once again underdogs in the tournament and face a tough first test against Finland. This will be Austria’s first-ever chance to appear in consecutive WJC tournaments, and, technicality or not, they’ll be hoping to make the most of it.

Finland handled their business on Day 1, beating a game German squad. Samuel Helenius, a second-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Kings in 2021, led the attack with two goals. Both were assisted by Brad Lambert, who connected on a beautiful cross-ice feed for Helenius’ second, which sealed the game midway through the third period

Russia vs. Switzerland (Red Deer, 4:30 PM)

Switzerland will also be debuting on Day 2, and will likewise look for redemption from last year when they failed to record any points in the round-robin tournament. Simon Knak, selected by Nashville in the sixth round in 202

Should Yaroslav Askarov get the chance to start consecutive games, he’ll look to pick up the pieces after the brutal loss on Day 1. He allowed three goals on 16 shots before Russia replaced him for the third period. Perhaps they were hoping to preserve him for an important game against Switzerland. If he starts, he’ll have a lot to prove.

Germany vs. Czechia (Edmonton, 7:00 PM)

Czechia was on the wrong side of the overpowered Canadians on Day 1 (pun intended), but they did rush out to a 3-1 lead on goals from Michal Gut, Pavel Novak, and Stanislav Svozil, the 69th overall pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2021. Gut added an assist on Svozil’s goal, the only Czechian player with two points on the night.

Germany’s lone goal against Finland came on the power play from Düsseldorf native Luca Münzenberger, whom the Edmonton Oilers took in the late third round in 2021.

Sweden vs. Slovakia (Red Deer, 9:30 PM)

The night’s final matchup features teams seemingly headed in opposite directions. Slovakia fought a good fight against the defending gold medalist Americans, but ultimate lost 3-2. Martin Chromiak, a fith-round prospect of the Los Angeles Kings, did collect two goals in the third period to put his team within striking distance.

Sweden got goals from six different players on Day 1, with New Jersey Devils prospect Alexander Holtz scoring the eventual game-winner early in the third period. Sweden is fortunate that New Jersey allowed the 2020 seventh-overall pick to join their team at this year’s tournament.
