Fabbro (Coquitlam, B.C./Boston University) assisted on Canada’s eight goal of the night, a backhand shot from Michael McLeod (Mississauga, Ont./Mississauga, OHL) while cleaning up a rebound.

Teammate Taylor Raddysh (Caledon, Ont/Erie, OHL) joined some elite company with Canada’s National Junior Team on Thursday night when he became the fourth player in team history to score four times in one game. Only Mario Lemieux. Simon Gagné and Brayden Schenn have been able to do that prior to Raddysh.

Canada took the 3-0 lead by the end of the first intermission and turned that into a 8-0 game as they headed out for the third period.

Goaltender Carter Hart (Sherwood Park, Alta./Everett, WHL) made 23 saves in his second win.
