Game Story

ZETTERLUND SCORES TWICE TO LEAD SWEDEN TO U17 BRONZE

STACIE COUCH

DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Fabian Zetterlund netted a pair of goals and Erik Brännström added one, all within the first 18 minutes, to lead Sweden to a 3-0 win over Canada Red in the bronze medal game Saturday at the 2015 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

It’s the second year in a row the Swedes have won the bronze medal, and their third overall; the Scandinavian side also finished third in 2010.

Arvid Söderblom recorded the shutout in just his second start of the tournament, turning aside all 29 Canadian shots he faced; Red outshot Sweden 29-20 overall.

Red held an 11-8 advantage in shots on goal in the first period, but the Swedes took control early.

Zetterlund got the Swedes on the board while a man down, splitting the Canadian defence and slipping a shot through the five-hole of Red goaltender Michael DiPietro (Amherstburg, Ont./Windsor, OHL) just past the midway mark of the opening period.

He struck again 4:42 later; Isac Lundeström picked up a rebound at the side of the Canadian goal and found Zetterlund, who snapped a shot over DiPietro’s shoulder.

Brännström played give-and-go with Filip Sveningsson to make it 3-0 at 17:40, and that would be it for offence from both sides.

The Canadians weren’t without their chances, but between Söderblom’s strong play and Swedes throwing themselves at everything they could get in front of, there was no offence to be found.

Red, which made its debut in Dawson Creek after playing three preliminary round games and its semifinal in Fort St. John, dropped its final two games of the tournament after a perfect round robin.
