Sabres Daily: Canada Wins At Worlds; Peterka Top Forward

Published

on

Five Buffalo Sabres players were prominent on the final day of the 2023 IIHF World Championships in Tampere, Finland. Forwards Peyton Krebs and Jack Quinn played a big part in Canada’s 5-2 victory over Team Germany in the gold medal game.  Krebs had primary assists on Sammy Blais first period goal and Lawson Crouse’s second-period tying goal, while Quinn was the setup man on Scott Laughton’s third-period insurance goal. Devon Levi served as the backup for starting goalie Samuel Montembeault.

Krebs finished the tournament with five points (1 goal, 4 assists), and Quinn had seven points (2 goals, 5 assists).

 

Sabres In Case You Missed It

 

Sabres forward J-J Peterka was the driving force of Germany’s silver medal effort, finishing second in scoring behind Rocco Grimaldi of Team USA with 12 points (6 goals, 6 assists). The 21-year-old was named the tournament’s top forward.

The tournament had a disappointing end for Alex Tuch. The Americans went into the weekend unbeaten through the round-robin and quarter-final round, but 4-3 overtime losses to Germany on Saturday and Latvia saw them finish without a medal.
