Meurs and Canada's U18 Team Win Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in the Czech & Slovak Republics
Submitted By cmetzger on Sunday, August 15, 2010
Lakers Alumnus Garrett Meurs and Canada's U18 team won the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in the Czech and Slovak Republics yesterday with a tough 1-0 win over Team USA. This was the third year in a row and the sixth time in seven years that Canada has won this tournament.

Canada had one exhibition game prior to the tournament opening - a 3-2 overtime win over the Czechs that saw the Canadians rebound twice from one goal deficits.

The Canadians opened the tournament with a 6-3 win over the Swedes on Monday, followed that up with a 7-3 win over the Swiss on Tuesday, and completed the round robin with a 6-1 win over the Slovaks on Wednesday. Meurs picked up two assists in the win over the Slovaks. In Friday's semi-final game the Canadians defeated the Czechs 6-2, a game that saw Meurs score his first goal of the tournament.

Congratulations to Garrett and his U18 team-mates on keeping the Canadian winning streak alive.
