MALMO, SWEDEN - Zach Fucale is likely to get a shot in the Canada net Monday.

Coach Brent Sutter hinted following a 5-4 shootout loss to the Czech Republic Saturday that he will make the switch to Fucale from Jake Paterson.

"You have to assume you are not going to use the same goalie three games in four nights," Sutter said, "so you have to think something is going to change there."

Canada's only non-game day in this span is Sunday. It plays Slovakia Monday and the United States Tuesday night.

If Fucale is in net against the Slovaks and does well, he could start against the U.S.

Paterson didn't shine against the Czechs.
