DOMI SCORES TWICE AS CANADIAN COMEBACK FALLS SHORT IN U18 PRE-HLINKA LOSS

BRECLAV, Czech Republic – Max Domi (Toronto, Ont./London, OHL) scored twice and added one assist and Sam Reinhart (West Vancouver, B.C./Kootenay, WHL) had a goal and two helpers, all in a four-goal third period, as Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team dropped a 6-4 pre-tournament decision to the Czech Republic on Saturday.

The game was the lone exhibition contest for Canada, which opens the 2012 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament on Monday against Switzerland (8 a.m. ET/5 a.m. PT) as it looks for a fifth straight gold medal at the event.

The Canadians trailed 5-0 after two periods and 6-1 early in the third before mounting their unsuccessful comeback.

Jérémy Grégoire (Sherbrooke, Que./Chicoutimi, QMJHL) scored the other goal for Canada, which outshot the Czechs 32-28. Anthony Duclair (Pointe-Claire, Que./Quebec, QMJHL) added two assists, while Curtis Lazar (Vernon, B.C./Edmonton, WHL) was the only other Canadian to record a point, picking up one helper.

Despite outshooting the Czech Republic 12-6 in the first period, Canada trailed 2-0 after 20 minutes, and it was 4-0 when both teams changed goaltenders midway through the second, with Eric Comrie (Edmonton, Alta./Tri-City, WHL) replacing Zachary Fucale (Rosemère, Que./Halifax, QMJHL).

Down five goals when the puck dropped to start the third period, Domi got Canada on the board four minutes into the final frame with a shorthanded effort, only to see the Czechs restore their five-goal advantage just over two minutes later.

Reinhart and Domi scored two minutes apart to cut the lead to three with just under 10 minutes remaining, and Grégoire rounded out the scoring with one second on the clock.
