Andre Burakowsky scored a hat trick in front of his home fans in Malmo, as Sweden pounded the Norwegian team 10-0 at the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championship.

Swedish goaltender Marcus Hogberg was perfect, though not very busy. The Ottawa Senators draftee stopped all 13 shots Norway threw his way.

Six Swedes finished the game with three points as Gustav Olofsson, Alexander Wennberg, Sebastian Collberg, Elias Lindholm and Nick Sorensen all registered a goal and two assists, in addition to Burakowsky's hat trick.

The win improves Sweden to 3-0 and puts them provisionally atop Group B with a game in-hand over Russia, who will play Finland on Monday.

Should the Russians beat Finland, the winner of their game against Sweden would determine first place in Group B.

Norway now falls to 0-3 and must beat Switzerland on Monday to have any hope of avoiding the relegation round.
