In a major surprise, forward @Nikolaj Ehlers and Denmark handed Canada its second loss of the 2022 IIHF World Championship on Monday.
Ehlers, who faced off against Winnipeg Jets teammates @Pierre-Luc Dubois and @Adam Lowry, helped his home country secure a 3-2 victory. Their first-ever over Team Canada – making this one of the biggest upsets of the tournament.
The game-winner, registered at the 12:11 mark of the third period, was credited to Denmark forward Mathias Bau. This power-play marker, however, wouldn’t have been possible if not for a perfect pass by Ehlers – serving as his sixth point of this year’s event – from below the red line.
While in a losing effort, Dubois and Lowry each recorded an assist during this contest. Unfortunately, those helpers weren’t enough to rescue their country from defeat.
