CALGARY, AB - Canada's National Under 18 Team lost its first exhibition game overseas 6-4 to the Czech Republic Under 18 Team, in Havlichuv Brod on Sunday, August 13th, less than 48 hours after arriving in Europe.

The score was even 2-2 after the first, but the Czech Republic scored three straight power play goals to take a lead they would never relinguish. Stephen Weiss, Jay McClement, Duncan Milroy and Trevor Daley scored for Canada. Daniel Blackburn and Drew McIntyre shared goaltending duties.

Prior to the game, the coaching staff announced that Jordin Tootoo would be the team's captain. The native of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, is the first player from the newly formed territory to be play with Canada's National Under 18 Team. Tootoo plays with the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings.

The coaching staff also named the Ottawa 67's Brendan Bell, of Nepean, ON, and the Seattle Thunderbirds' Matthew Spiller, of Daysland, AB as assistant captains.

Canada's National Under 18 Team plays the Czech Republic Under 18 Team in two more exhibition games, before taking part in the 4 Nations Under 18 Tournament in Kezmarok, Slovakia from August 18-20. Canada's next game will be on Monday, August 14th in Trebic, Czech Republic.
