Nine players who helped Canada win gold at last summer's Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament will be part of camp in Toronto and Finland leading into the 2014 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship.
Just two months after leading Canada to an Olympic gold medal, Kevin Dineen is back behind the bench as head coach of Canada's National Men's Under-18 Team at the world championship in Finland.
Twenty-two players have been named to Canada’s National Men’s Summer U18 Team and will chase Canada’s sixth consecutive gold medal at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament, which opens next Aug. 5 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Two players who helped Canada to a gold medal at April’s U18 world championship are among the 42 invited to Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team selection camp, July 25-29 at the MasterCard Centre in Toronto.
A three-time OHL coach of the year and Memorial Cup champion with London in 2005, Dale Hunter will serve as head coach of Canada's National Men's Summer Under-18 Team at the 2013 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament.
Michael Dal Colle scored the game-winner four minutes into the first period and Julio Billia recorded the shutout as Canada blanked the Americans to win its sixth consecutive gold medal at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament.
Spencer Watson and Sam Bennett scored first-period goals to spark the offence, and Clark Bishop added an empty-net goal as Canada beat Russia 3-1 and advanced to the gold medal game at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament.
Brayden Point scored in regulation time and in the shootout, and Spencer Watson had the shootout winner to help Canada beat Switzerland 4-3 and stay alive in the hunt for a semifinal spot at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament.
Spencer Watson and Sam Bennett each scored once and added an assist, and Jared McCann opened the scoring early, but Canada fell to 1-1 in Group A action at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament after dropping a 4-3 decision to Sweden.
Daniel Audette, Michael Dal Colle and Hayden Fleury all scored on the PP, Spencer Watson added another on a penalty shot, and Julio Bilia earned the shutout Monday, giving Canada a 4-0 win over the Czech Republic to kick off the Ivan Hlinka.
Spencer Watson opened and closed the scoring and Michael Dal Colle got the game-winner as Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team outshot Slovakia 50-17 on its way to a 3-1 pre-Memorial of Ivan Hlinka victory Saturday in Piestany.
Brayden Point scored twice on the power play, and Daniel Audette and Nelson Nogier had a goal and an assist each as Red beat White 5-4 in the finale of Canada’s National Men’s Summer U18 Team selection camp on Monday.
Mason McDonald and Julio Billia combined for 37 saves, and Carl Neill scored the winner early in the second period as Red earned a 4-1 win over White on Sunday at Canada’s National Men’s Summer U18 Team selection camp.
Spencer Watson scored twice in a four-goal third period and Robby Fabbri added a goal and two assists as White earned the first victory at Canada’s National Men’s Summer U18 Team selection camp, 7-4 over Red on Saturday.
