WHL Network

 

Canada opened tournament play at the 2019 Hlinka Gretzky Cup Monday with a 6-0 blanking of Finland in Breclav, Czech Republic.

Jake Neighbours skated on Canada’s first line alongside Quinton Byfield (Sudbury Wolves, OHL) and Seth Jarvis (Portland Winterhawks, WHL), who scored twice.

Like Saturday’s pre-tournament game against Slovakia, Canada scored three goals in the first period to build an insurmountable lead. They scored a single goal in the second and added two more in the third. The final shots were 34-17 for Canada.

Preliminary-round action continues Tuesday when the Canadians take on Switzerland (9:30 AM ET / 6:30 AM PT).
