Canada is now down to 11 forwards for the remainder of the game. Geekie had two goals and an assist through the first three games of the tournament.
Germany took a 1-0 lead on the five-minute power play on a goal from Arizona Coyotes prospect Julian Lutz.
Canada is also without forward Matthew Savoie in this game due to an undisclosed injury. Forward Jagger Firkus was added to the 25-man roster on Saturday but is not in today's lineup.
