Canada captures gold over Sweden in Ivan Hlinka tournament

PENTICTON VEES CAPTAINS

UPDATE- Four first period goals helped lead Canada to a 7-3 win over Sweden in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup on Saturday.

It’s the eight straight tournament win for Canada. Helping Canada to victory was Pierre-Luc Dubois scoring the first two goals. Canada’s final goal was scored by Okanagan Hockey Academy alum Beck Malenstyn, who was set up by Penticton Vees captain Tyson Jost and Dubois.

“I’m really proud of this group of players. They all pulled together for one thing,” said Canada head coach Stan Butler on the Ivan Hlinka website. “We told them when we got here: this is about one team and one goal. We were one team and we chased one goal, which we got here today. I think we had a big scare with the Russians last night and we wanted to make sure that didn´t happen again today. We wanted to play our best game today and we got off to a good start.”

Jost along with Vees teammate Dante Fabbro, helped Canada win all five of its games en route to the championship. In the 25-year history of the tournament, Canada has won it 20 times.
