  • It’s an important day at the 2024 World Hockey Championship, as several Habs players will be in action. The first quarterfinal game features Kaiden Guhle facing Juraj Slafkovsky, as Team Canada is set to face Team Slovakia at 10:20 am ET. Slafkovsky has maintained a point-per-game pace in the tournament, with seven assists in seven games, but will face his greatest challenge as he and the other Slovaks take on the heavily favoured Canadians.


  • Cole Caufield found his scoring rhythm by earning four points (2 G, 2 A) against Latvia. He’ll look to maintain his production as Team USA faces the host nation, Czechia, at 2:20 pm ET.

  • Prospect Oliver Kapanen has stopped scoring at will after earning six goals in the preliminary games, but his uptick in production is worth keeping in mind going forward. [Daily Faceoff]
