Canada wins sixth straight gold medal at Ivan Hlinka Memorial hockey tournament

PIESTANY, Slovakia - Goaltender Julio Billia earned a shutout and Canada defeated the United States 4-0 in the final of the Ivan Hlinka Memorial men's under-18 hockey tournament.

It's Canada's sixth straight gold medal at the summer event, co-hosted by the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Michael Dal Colle, Jayce Hawryluk, Aaron Ekblad and Brendan Lemieux scored for Canada.

Alex Nedeljkovic took the loss in goal for the United States.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
