LLOYDMINSTER, SK -- Craig MacDonald of Antigonish, NS, scored a pair of goals and drew an assist as Canada's Men's National Team posted a lopsided victory over a jet-lagged Belarus on Thursday night.

The game was the first in a 4-game series against Belarus as Team Canada begins an 11-game Canadian tour that will see them play the Czech Republic as well as the Swiss National Team.

Team Canada outshot Belarus 42-22 as 10 players shared the goals scoring before more than 2,000 fans in Lloydminster. Brad Chartrand of Winnipeg, had a goal and three assists, while Jason MacDonald of Charlottetown, PEI, Mickey Elick of Calgary, Rod Stevens of Fort St. John, BC, Craig Herperger of Stockholm, SK, Randy Perry of Spruce Grove, AB, Nic Beaudoin of Ottawa, Trevor Gallant of London, ON and Shane Johnson of Brandon, MB all scored goals for Canada.

"Belarus lacked their normal skill and speed level owing to their long travel day," said National Team head coach Andy Murray. "We kept the tempo high and forced them to play tired."

The series against Belarus continues tonight (Friday) in Eston, SK, where game time is 7 p.m.. On Sunday the two teams will play in Wilcox, SK, with the final game of the four-game set in Souris, MB, -- head coach Murray's home town -- on Tuesday, March 24.

On March 25, Team Canada travels to Ontario, where they will play the Czech Republic in Windsor on Friday, March 27, in Guelph on Saturday, March 28 and again in Midland on Monday, March 30.
