CALGARY, Alberta – Hockey Canada has announced the 18-game schedule for the 2024 Hlinka Gretzky Cup, Aug. 5-10 at Rogers Place in Edmonton.

The prestigious international tournament is a partnership with Hockey Alberta, the Oilers Entertainment Group (OEG), the City of Edmonton, Explore Edmonton and the Government of Alberta, showcasing some of the best under-18 players in the world.

“We are extremely excited to bring the Hlinka Gretzky Cup back to Edmonton for the first time in six years, giving fans the opportunity to cheer on the future stars of the NHL,” said Dean McIntosh, senior vice-president of revenue, fan experience and community impact. “This international showcase would not be possible without the support and investment of our event partners and we anticipate an incredible week of hockey in August.”

Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team will be looking for a third-consecutive gold medal, and a record-extending 25th summer U18 gold since 1992. Canada will be joined by Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland in Group A, while Group B is made up of Czechia, Finland, Germany and the United States.

The tournament begins Aug. 5 at 12 p.m. MT with a matchup between Slovakia and Sweden. Canada will close out opening-day action against Switzerland at 7:30 p.m. MT, before facing Slovakia on Aug. 6 and Sweden on Aug. 7 to close out preliminary-round play.

The semifinals are set for Aug. 9, with the bronze medal and gold medal games to follow on Aug. 10 at 1:30 p.m. MT and 6 p.m. MT, respectively.

TSN and RDS, the official broadcast partners of Hockey Canada, will provide full tournament coverage.
