On Friday, Canada was taking on Switzerland in a pre-tournament game as they look to build chemistry before things officially get underway on Boxing Day.

During the second period, Canada scored four unanswered goals, but also got a little bit undisciplined and saw one of their best player get ejected.

Projected first-overall pick in 2024, Macklin Celebrini, found himself kickes out of the game after receiving a five-minute major for boarding. The Swiss player's head went into the boards quite hard, but thankfully he was okay and continued to play.

The International Ice Hockey Federation's Disciplinary Panel will definitely be looking at this hit, as they do with any game misconduct, to determine if any suspension will be needed.


Team Canada will begin their quest for a third straight gold medal on Boxing Day as they take on Finland at 6 a.m. PT/9 a.m. ET on TSN.
