HALMSTAD, SWEDEN -- Canada's U18 team moves onto the quarter-finals at the World Under 18 Championship with a 0-0 tie against Finland on Monday. Canada outshot Finland 34-22, but was shut out for the second straight game.

Canada finished the preliminary round with a 2-1-1 record, and will either finish in 2nd or 3rd in group B, depending on results from this evening's games.

Without a win in today's game versus Finland, Canada's hope of finishing in first place in group B was not realized. However, with today's tie, Canada gets one point - good enough to guarantee a trip to the quarter-finals on Wednesday. Canada will either play Czech Republic or Russia in its quarter-final game, depending on the final results this evening of the remaining preliminary games.

Canada's Jonathan Bernier played very solid the entire game, making 22 saves and earning the shut out. Finland's Riku Helenius stopped all 34 Canadian shots for Finland. Both goaltenders were named player of the game for their respective teams.

Canada will travel to Angleholm on Tuesday, which is about a 45 minute drive from Halmstad, and will practice on Tuesday afternoon in preparation for Wednesday's quarter-final game.
