Michael Bunting had a goal and an assist, while Brandon Hagel also scored for Canada, which won the World Cup last year in Tampere, Finland. Olen Zellweger had two assists and Joel Hofer made 13 saves.

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Kaiden Guhle was credited with an assist.

For the British, Liam Kirk had a goal and an assist, while Ben O’Connor also scored. Jackson Whistle stopped 30 shots.

Kirk opened the scoring on the power play 7:47 into the game, but Bunting responded 30 seconds later.

Hagel gave Canada the lead after 5:45 of play, then Bedard gave his team a three-goal cushion.

The Canadian sensation first picked up a loose puck and found the opening at 11:39, then he took advantage of a nice feed from Nick Paul to shoot into a gaping cage at 15:29.

O’Connor gave the British hope by cutting the lead to 4-2 with 11:11 left in the game, but Canada closed the door after that.

Canada will play its next match on Sunday against Denmark.
