In the duel with Switzerland, the Germans took the lead at 5:37 thanks to a goal by Bennet Rossmy, a forward of Eisbären Berlin, who has worked in the youth teams of Liberec and in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons managed a total of four matches in the first league for Venice nad Jizera.

In the 37th minute, Haakon Hänelt restored Germany’s two-goal advantage, and at 51:40, Jonas Taibel brought the Swiss back into contact, but they did not erase the loss.

Scorers Wyatt Kaiser and Carter Mazur scored twice in the USA jersey against Austria. Sweden’s Calle Clang remains the only goalkeeper with a clean sheet in the tournament, as he replaced Andrew Oke for the third period in the American goaltending by Remington Keopple.
