Canada improves record to 2-0 with convincing win over Switzerland at Hlinka Gretzky Cup

 

Canada scored three goals in the opening period, added three in the second, and two more in the third to earn an 8-0 victory on Tuesday at the 2019 Hlinka Gretzky Cup.

Shots on goal were tilted heavily in Canada’s favour, as the reigning champions outshot the Swiss 14-1 through 20 minutes, 21-5 in the middle frame and 13-2 in the final 20 minutes for a game total of 48-8.

Jake Neighbours once again skated on a line with 2018 OHL first overall pick Quinton Byfield (Sudbury Wolves) and Seth Jarvis (Portland Winterhawks, WHL).

Canada has yet to surrender a goal in the tournament, finishing their second game of the preliminary round with a goals for/against of 14-0.

Next up for Canada is a meeting with the Czech Republic on Wednesday, August 7 at 11:00 AM MT. Games will be aired on TSN. Check TSN.ca for scheduling details.
