Day one of the World Juniors: Oilers prospects light up lesser teams

Given that the World Juniors have become a tradition north of the border, many Oilers fans probably already saw Canada run the Latvians out of the rink to the tune of a record-breaking 16-0 score.  While the "third" line of Cormier-Bourque-Kozun accounted for much of the scoring, Jordan Eberle was, as usual, making things happen just about every time he touched the puck.  He finished with a stat line of two goals on seven shots, a +1, and a couple of solid penalty-killing shifts.  Canada was 6/8 on the PP, with Eberle scoring his second goal of the night with the man advantage.

Team Sweden, meanwhile, pasted the Czech Republic 10-1 in Regina.  Sweden has two Oilers prospects, in Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson and Anton Lander.  I didn't watch that game (obviously), but both fellows had excellent games statistically, with Lander scoring on both his shots and finishing +4, while Paajarvi had a goal and four assists, finishing +2.  Sweden finished 3/7 on the PP, with Paajarvi factoring in on all three goals (1G, 2A) and Lander scoring one of them.
