Erie Otters center Connor McDavid was held without a point for the first time in six games at the IIHF U18 World Championship in Sochi, Russia. Yet the Canadians still beat Finland 3-1 in the semifinals today to earn a spot in Sunday’s gold-medal game against the United States, which beat Russia 4-3 in the other semifinal.
Canada will play for the U18 title for the first time since winning in 2008. McDavid, who had hat tricks in his previous two games, still leads all players with eight goals and 14 points. He’s tied for the lead with six assists. He already has set Canadian records for goals and points in this tournament.
