As the World Juniors unfold on New Year's Eve, the online sphere is abuzz with conflicting views on the Canada/Germany match.

Within a mere 11 seconds from the start, Team Canada forward Conor Geekie received a 5-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for an alleged illegal check on Team Germany player Samuel Schindler.

Following these penalties, an evidently frustrated Geekie raised his hands in frustration and was captured on camera uttering some less-than-pleasant words towards the referees; here's a glimpse.




This resulted in his removal from the game, sparking heated reactions from individuals on X, including Conor's elder sibling (and center for the Boston Bruins) Morgan.


Irrespective of varying viewpoints regarding whether it constituted a clean hit or not, this incident underscores the stark differences in the perceived regulations between the NHL and the IIHF.

In the end, Team Canada emerged victorious, triumphing over Germany with a 6-3 scoreline.
