2011 Ivan Hlinka Tournament

33 posts in this topic

The U-18 select Ivan Hlinka tournament began today and both USA and Canada were defeated handily.

Canada, the three-time defending champions, were destroyed 5-1 by Sweden and looked outclassed. Only goal scorer for Canada was Chicoutimi player Charles Hudon. Top 2012 NHL draft prospect Filip Forsberg had a beauty clapper for the Swede's.

USA lost 6-3 to Finland, giving up 5 unanswered goals in the process.

Other games saw Russia beat Slovakia 5-2 with top prospect Mikhail Grigorenko picking up a pair of assists, and the home Czechs defeated Switzerland 3-1.

An interesting storyline heading into tomorrow's games sees American-born Russian Alex Galchenyuk (also a top 2012 prospect) playing for the USA against Russia.

Other games are Swiss vs. Sweden, Slovakia vs. Finland, and Canada vs. Czechs

Mikhail Grigorenko has immense potential. I see comparisons of Malkin, Thornton and Carter. And that's not bad company.

Grigorenko, and Galchenyuk are expected to go top 10 right?

The big game tomorrow is Finland vs. Russia. The Fins have been the best team in the tournament and the winner of that game, unless it goes to OT, will win group B and likely face Canada in the semi's. If Russia wins, USA will be out of the medal round. If Finland wins and USA wins, Russia is out. On the other bracket it's gonna be Sweden 1, Canada 2, barring some huge upsets.

Another year, another Gold medal for the boys. I believe thats... 4 in a row at the Ivan Hlinka?

It sucks to see the U18 Championships played so early in the year when most of our top players are in the playoffs in their respective leagues.

I can't wait to see how Mathew Dumba pans out.
