Coyotes at the World Championship Part 3: Three points for Garland

The IIHF World Championship continues and the Arizona Coyotes players are showing what they can do.


The IIHF World Championship continues and Arizona Coyotes players are continuing to make an impact. Five Coyotes' players are in this year's tournament across three teams, and they continued to impress as the games go on.

Team Canada

After a shaky start, things seem to have turned around for Team Canada. This is good for goaltenders Darcy Kuemper and Adin Hill, who look to be getting some support.

Kuemper was back in net for Canada's 4-2 win over Kazakhstan, making 26 saves on 28 shots. Hill rode backup for the game, making it another game where Canada was riding an all-Coyotes tandem.

Michael Bunting was hasn't found the scoring touch he showed in the final half of the Coyotes' season. He was again held pointless in 14:13, making it his fifth game where he was held off the scoresheet.

Team USA

Conor Garland and Team USA have been having a great tournament so far. The team dropped their first game against Finland, but since they have won every game since, including a 4-2 win over Latvia and a 2-1 win over Norway.

Garland was a big part of both victories. He had another multi-point game against Latvia, registering two assists, and he got his first goal of the tournament against Norway.

Team Great Britain

Great Britain was a fun story to start the tournament, but reality seems to be starting to set in. They lost 4-1 to Sweden in a game where they were outshot 56 to 14, and they followed that up with a 6-1 loss to the Czech Republic.

But, Liam Kirk continues to impress. He scored Great Britain’s lone goal of the game and currently leads the tournament with five goals.

He took a break from scoring in the game against the Czech Republic to give Matthew Myers a chance to score. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t impress, registering an assist and showing off some impressive skating and dedication.
