SOCHI, Russia – Canada’s National Men’s Under-18 Team has earned a place in the quarter-finals at the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World U18 Championship after finishing first in Group B during preliminary round play with a perfect 4-0 record.

Canada will play its quarter-final against the Czech Republic in Sochi on Thursday at noon ET/9 a.m. PT, a game which can be seen live on TSN and RDS, Hockey Canada’s official broadcasters. Check your local listings for broadcast times in your area.

Canada blanked Sweden 6-0 on Tuesday to clinch first. It also recorded victories over Slovakia (4-1), Germany (3-1) and Switzerland (10-1) during the round robin portion of the tournament.

Connor McDavid (Newmarket, Ont./Erie, OHL) finished as Canada’s top scorer in the preliminary round, recording 11 points (five goals, six assists) in four games, including a hat trick and an assist in Tuesday’s win over Sweden.
