It’s day three of the World Junior A Challenge at the Langley Events Centre and tickets are expected to be at a premium with both Canadian sides in action.

First, it’s Canada East (1-0) taking on Russia (0-1) at 4 p.m. and in the nightcap, probably the most anticipated game of the preliminary portion of the tournament sees Canada West (0-1) face the defending champion United States (0-1) 7:30 p.m.

Sweden has been the story of the tournament so far with a pair of shutout wins. They’ve completed the preliminary part of their schedule and await an opponent for Friday’s semifinal.
