Founded in 1963 by Father David Bauer, Canada’s National Men’s Team was a full-time program from 1963-68 and 1983-2000, giving Canada a constant presence at major international events around the world. Today, the team gathers for a select number of tournaments every season, including the Spengler Cup and IIHF World Championship.
