Dach went to the dressing room in the third period of Saturday’s 5-1 win over Sweden after delivering a check. He did not return to the game.

Beck, 18, was drafted in the second round (33rd) by the Montreal Canadiens in this year’s NHL entry draft.

The centre has 17 goals and 23 assists in 30 games for the OHL’s Mississauga Steelheads.

Dach, a 19-year-old from St. Albert, Alta., had two assists in four games for Canada in Halifax.
