What channel is Canada vs. Austria on today? Start time, live stream for 2023 World Juniors game

Canada is looking to continue its offensive onslaught on Thursday as the defending champion takes on Austria in both teams’ third game at the 2023 World Junior Championship. 

Connor Bedard’s seven points propelled Canada to a 11-2 thumping of Germany on Wednesday. Bedard tied the Canadian World Juniors record for points in a game. He and Dylan Guenther each recorded hat tricks in the squad’s first win at the tournament. 

“It’s cool,” Bedard said of the record. “There are probably some pretty good names on that list, but it’s not a huge deal for me. We got the win, and I got a couple of lucky ones. It was one of those nights.”

It was a sensational effort, especially after Canada’s stunning loss on Monday to Czechia in its opener. Canada enters play Thursday in third place in Group A, behind Czechia and Sweden. 

The goal horn will likely be busy again Thursday as Canada faces an Austrian team that has struggled to keep the puck out of its net. Austria has lost its first two games at the competition by a combined 20-0.
