When Team Canada suits up against Russia in the bronze medal game at the World Junior  Hockey Championship on Saturday, they will have a new starter in goal.

On Friday, the club announced that Jordan Binnington will start in place of Malcolm Subban.

You can watch coverage of the bronze medal game live on TSN, TSN.ca (PPV) and TSN Mobile TV at 3:30am et/12:30am pt.  You can also catch encore presentations of the game at 1pm et/10am pt and 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt on TSN.

Subban was chased from the net with 7:16 to go in the second period of  Canada's 5-1 loss to the United States on Thursday after allowing four goals on 16 shots.

Subban told TSN after the game that he didn't see the first two shots that beat him.

"It wasnt anyone's fault, they just caught us in bad positions," Subban said. "It's tough to lose like this, but it happens... They're a good team, you got to give credit where credit it is due."

Earlier on Friday, the IIHF announced that Griffin Reinhart was assessed a four-game suspension for a high sticking minor in Thursday's loss.  Hockey Canada is appealing the suspension, but Reinhart won't play for Canada on Saturday.
