If it’s early August, it must mean another golden moment for Team Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament. The Canadians rode a four-goal first period to a 7-3 win over Sweden at the 2015 edition of this U18 tournament, their eighth consecutive gold medal at this event.
Leading the way on offense for Canada in the win was forward Pierre-Luc Dubois, who netted the first two goals of the game and added an assist on a goal by Beck Malenstyn. Other goal scorers for Canada included forwards Michael McLeod, Tyler Benson, Tanner Kaspick, and Jordan Kyrou. Dylan Wells secured the win in net for Canada, stopping 15 of 18 shots fired his way by Sweden.
Dubois was one of two players from the QMJHL chosen to compete in this tournament. He competes for the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, where he posted 10 goals and 45 points in 54 games last season as a rookie.
Hockey’s Future spoke with Dubois after the gold medal game, with his comments being captured in this HF video.
