Italy was relegated to Division 1, with Denmark and Canada battling for third place in Group A. The Scandinavians won it 3-2.
It is not new that Denmark has become a solid reality; Thanks to the continued growth of its men, in Helsinki they allowed the luxury of beating Canada for the first time in their history. Making a difference is the first 20 ‘, in which Marcus Laritchen and Peter Regin double the advantage at the same time. Max Kamdois reduced the distance to 22.33, although a charge in the head forced him to leave the game with a 25 ‘penalty. Another foul in the third half, this time by Thomas Sabot, 1-3 to Matthias Pav. The Canadians did not give up and Ryan Graves reopened the game at 59.06. Coach Claude Julian, unable to center the tie, uses it to insert extra movement.
