Both games were played Wednesday at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.

In the Prep Division gold medal game, Shattuck-St. Mary’s (Faribault, Minn.) got a 27-save shutout from Anthony Brodeur and a goal and an assist from Ryan Norman to remain undefeated all time at the tournament and hand the Czechs their first loss. Brett Boeing and Alex Rodriguez had the other goals for Shattuck, which did all of its scoring in the first period.

In the Varsity Division gold medal game, Okanagan Hockey Academy (Penticton, B.C.) avenged its lone loss of the tournament, getting two goals and an assist from Brett Young and three assists from Max Fritz to beat Rothesay Netherwood (Rothesay, N.B.). Erik Hamelin, Daniel Nault and Drew Carter also had goals for Okanagan, which scored three times in the third period to break open a 2-2 game.

In Wednesday’s bronze medal games, Germany’s national under-17 team beat the Edge School for Athletes (Calgary, Alta.) in the Prep Division, while the Edge School for Athletes (Gold) beat Banff Hockey Academy (Banff, Alta.) 3-0 to finish third in the Varsity Division.

In its second year, The World Sport School Challenge was developed in line with a commitment made by Hockey Canada’s officers and branches, “to service sport schools and create a positive and flexible infrastructure that meets the needs of this Hockey Canada customer,” one of six priorities of focus the organization committed to in August 2011.

Across the country, Hockey Canada currently endorses about 10 sport schools, which have formal partnerships with educational institutions with the aim to enhance learning opportunities for students while also developing their hockey skills.
