(WGR 550) - Connor McDavid put on a clinic for Canada as they breezed past Norway on Thursday 5-0 at the IIHF World Championship.

The Oilers captain had a hat-trick and was making plays like it was pond hockey in the backyard. McDavid is the third leading scorer in the tournament with four goals and six assists for 10 points. He trails Sebastian Aho (CAR) of Finland by two points for the overall lead.

Bo Horvat (VAN) had two goals, including a shorthanded goal.

Curtis McElhinney (TOR) and Darcy Kuemper (ARZ) shared the shutout, facing just seven shots, all on McElhinney.

Sabres center Ryan O’Reilly again played with Josh Bailey (NYI) and Brayden Schenn (STL), as he has all tournament, and he was held pointless for the first time. He has three goals and no assists in four games.

Canada is tied for first place with Team USA in Group B with 10 points, but the U.S. has the tie breaker. Finland is one point behind.

Canada plays Finland on Saturday.
