Rangers prospect Brett Berard leaves WJC game hurt — but returns

The United States plays Finland in a warm-up game for the 2022 World Junior Championship on Thursday afternoon.

New York Rangers prospect Brett Berard started the game skating on the top line for the US.

Thankfully, Berard returned to the ice for the start of the second period.
