Josh Anderson stood out in Canada’s preseason game this morning

On Monday we learned the composition of the Canadian team for the World Cup. Josh Anderson is the only player representing the Canadians on Team Canada.

Let’s say it was about time that we were made aware of the members of the formation, because 48 hours later, Canada has already completed its preparatory tournament, which consisted of a duel against the Americans.

Despite being an exhibition match, it’s still interesting to note that Canada had the upper hand over their southern rivals this morning. Claude Julien’s men won 4-3 on penalties.

And of all we must note that the number 17 Canadian Josh Anderson scored two points, including one goal.

Anderson, Cole Sillinger and Dylan Cozens scored in regulation time. On penalties, the same Cozens and Pierre-Luc Dubois scored the goals for Canada during the game. Note that it was good old Alex Galchenyuk who scored for the Americans in the penalty shootout.

Of course, it’s good to see Anderson picking up the pace quickly.

For Claude Julien’s men (and for all teams) such a match in a short tournament serves mainly to learn how to play as a team. After all, several guys who have never played together have to get to know each other.

Canada does not play tomorrow and on Friday at 1 p.m. Germany is on the menu for Canada as part of the tournament opener. Normally that should be a win.

Italy and Slovakia are Canada’s next opponents on May 15th and 16th. That’s what Canada expects in the near term to start the tournament… and those are games to take.

We’ll follow what the Flanelle Forward can do once the tournament starts.


– More Shane Wright on the menu.

– It’s been a long time, right?

– The Oilers captain stands up.

– Cale Makar dominates.

– The arbitration in MLB this year is tough.
