by @NHLFlyers

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Mark Streit's run with Team Europe has come to an end as Canada completed the sweep in the Finals last night, 2-1, and taking the series two games to none and winning the 2016 World Cup of Hockey Tournament.

Bellemare appeared in 13:53 of ice time for Europe, including 3:29 shorthanded time on ice, while Streit appeared in 13:52 of TOI with 1:09 on the club's power play.

Bellemare ends the tournament appearing in all nine games for Team Europe, posting four points (2g-2a) and averaging 13:33 of ice time. Streit also appeared in all nine games for Europe, recording one assist and logging an average of 16:04 of ice time.

Claude Giroux skated during the team's warmups in Game Two on Thursday, but did not appear in the finals for Team Canada, who ended the tournament with eight consecutive victories. Giroux appeared in four of the nine games.

In total, seven Flyers participated in the World Cup of Hockey Tournament from Sept. 5-29.

Although representing two different countries, Sean Couturier and Shayne Gostisbehere teamed up on the North American squad comprised of players 23 years old or younger from Canada and the United States.

Both Couturier and Gostisbehere appeared in every game of the tournament. Gostisbehere averaged a point per game with six points (1g-5a) in six contests, while Couturier was named an alternate captain for North America and posted eight shots on goal and logged plenty of minutes on the team's penalty kill.

For the Czech Republic, defenseman Radko Gudas was originally named to the team, but withdrew due to injury, while Jakub Voracek and goaltender Michal Neuvirth participated in the tournament.

Voracek played in all six games recording two points (1g-1a) and led the Czech Republic in the tournament round with 11 shots in three games. Neuvirth appeared in parts of four games in the tournament. In two preliminary games, he stopped 45 of 46 shots to post a .978 save percentage and 0.63 goals-against average, while in his only start of the tournament round he took a 6-0 loss to the Canada in which he saw a total of 50 shots thrown his way and produced some highlight reel saves.

Voracek, Neuvirth, Couturier and Gostisbehere have all rejoined the Flyers at training camp while Bellemare, Streit and Giroux are all expected to arrive in Philadelphia in the next few days. The Flyers have four games remaining in their preseason slate before the regular season kicks off in Los Angeles on Oct. 14.
