MUNICH, Germany - Canada’s National Men’s Team has finished in third place at the 2010 Deutschland Cup after a 3-2 shootout win over Slovakia on Sunday. Canada suffered after one-goal defeats to both Germany and Switzerland earlier in the week.

Adam Mitchell (Port Elgin, Ont./Hannover, DEL) scored the game-winning goal on Sunday afternoon against Slovakia. Lee Goren (Winnipeg, Man./Straubing, DEL) and Craig MacDonald (Antigonish, N.S./Mannheim, DEL) accounted for Canada’s two goals in regulation. Jean-Sebastien Aubin (Montreal, Que./Dusseldorf, DEL) made 34 saves for the win.

Canada was coached by Hockey Hall of Famer Mark Messier (Edmonton, Alta./New York Rangers, NHL) at the Deutschland Cup, with Rich Chernomaz (Port Alberni, B.C./Frankfurt, GER) and Jay Wells (Paris, Ont.) serving as assistant coaches.

All of the Team Canada players taking part in the 2010 Deutschland Cup are Canadians playing professional hockey in European leagues. Canada also played in the Swiss Challenge on November 9, with a different roster made up of potential Spengler Cup players, and defeated Switzerland 6-2.

Canada finished third at the 2010 Deutschland Cup, with three points. Germany finished first on the strength of a 2-1 overtime win over Switzerland in the final game on the schedule.

Canada’s National Men’s Team will take part in a third event during the 2010-11 season, the 2010 Spengler Cup. Canada’s roster for the 2010 Spengler Cup, which takes place December 26-31 in Davos, Switzerland, will be announced in mid-December.

Canada last participated in the Deutschland Cup in 2008, winning gold. The National Men’s Team has taken part in the tournament on 14 occasions (1992-2006, 2008), winning gold four times (2000, 2002, 2005, 2008).

Mark Messier (Edmonton, Alta./New York Rangers, NHL) will be head coach of both rosters, with Rich Chernomaz (Port Alberni, B.C./Frankfurt, GER) and Jay Wells (Paris, Ont.) as assistant coaches for the Deutschland Cup.

NOTE TO MEDIA: Mark Black, Hockey Canada’s manager of national teams/hockey operations, will be on-site with the team and will assist with media interview requests. He can be reached at mblack@hockeycanada.ca. The team staff and players will be en route back to their respective club teams and employers early on November 15.
