The World Junior Championship is like March Madness. Any team can win any given game and all the players have such a strong stake in the game. It is unfortunate though that sometimes the games can see some nastiness.
Marner may be finding himself sitting out the next game due to this hit. Carl Grundstrom of Sweden looked to be fine after the play but the damage has already been done. To make matters worse, Sweden won 5-2 against the much ballyhooed Canada team. Salt in the wound for the Canadians who now get to face a tough Finnish team.
