Czechia scored with 11.7-seconds left in regulation to beat Canada 3-2 in the quarterfinals at the world junior hockey championship in Sweden.
Jakub Stanci’s second goal of the game deflected off defenceman Oliver Bonk; son of former NHLer Radek Bonk, and slid past goalie Mathis Rousseau.
Matthew Wood and Jake Furlong scored for Canada.
The game was a rematch of last year’s gold-medal game in Halifax, which Canada won 3-2 in overtime.
Owen Beck was Canada’s lone returnee, while five players of that Czech team played today.
