Canada 4 Sweden 0
Under-18 Junior World Cup August 10, 2005 Breclav, CZE
Team Canada came out strong by playing a very physical game right from the opening whistle. Canada got into some penalty trouble, but was able to kill off all the Swedish power plays. Canada’s Zach Hamill had an outstanding game scoring once on a great effort driving to the net, and fed Jonathan Toews on a slick cross ice pass for a power play goal. Canadian goalie Leland Irving played very well, stopping all 26 shots for the shutout. Other Canadian goals were scored by Cory Emmerton and Jordan Staal who notched a short handed breakaway goal.
