Canada took home the gold in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial men’s under-18 hockey tournament on Saturday, beating the United States 4-0.
Michael Dal Colle, Jayce Hawryluk, Aaron Ekblad and Brendan Lemieux (son of Claude) were Canada’s goal scorers while netminder Julio Billia earned a 20-save shutout.
Head coach Dale Hunter (pictured) praised his team’s pride to the Canadian Press.
“When you put the Canadian sweater on, there’s a lot of pride,” Hunter said. “These kids here had a lot of pride and that’s what they’re going to bring when the [under-18] world championships come next year.”
The U.S. team seemed to take some positives away from grabbing the silver medal, at least according to their quotes from NHL.com.
