Switzerland provided very little competition for Team Canada in quarter-final play at the world junior hockey championship Tuesday.
Moose Jaw Warriors forward Brett Howden had a goal and three assists while Drake Batherson scored twice as Canada defeated the Swiss 8-2 to move into a semi-final against the Czech Republic Thursday.
Howden got the scoring started just 48 seconds in with the Canadians having a 3-0 lead after one period of play.
Pats forward Sam Steel had one assist in the game giving him six points for the tournament which is tied for second in club scoring.
Thursday’s game can be seen on TSN.
