Ok this lame ass attempt at a GDT is courtesy of me forgetting to do up a nice picture last night and being stuck at work with only Paint at my disposal.
Canada looks to improve their record to 3-0-0 tonight against Slovakia. After tonight, there is one more game to go in the preliminary round for the Canadians (vs. the United States on Thursday). If you haven’t been watching, you really should tune in and take a look at one of our young stars in action (Jordan Eberle). He’s played pretty phenomenally.
GDT: World Junior Hockey Championships - Canada vs. Switzerland
Alright, game 2. This is another one that should be an easy win, but it’s never smart to write a team off before playing them. From what I recall, the Swiss generally play a tight defensive game as well. So the score may be fairly close. Canada has played one game thus far, a 16-0 drubbing over Latvia. The Swiss fell 3-0 to the Americans.
Don’t forget about the Battle Of Alberta GDT, one post lower.
Just a quick post game rant. I watched the game, and Jordan Eberle played fantastic. Apparently I’m not the only one that thought so. Despite teammate Brandon McMillan recording the hat trick, Eberle won player of the game! Eberle finished the game with 1 goal, 4 assists, and was +2. Congrats Jordan!
GDT: World Junior Hockey Championships - Canada vs. Latvia
Here we go, the first ever Puttin’ On The Foil GDT for the World Junior Hockey Championships, featuring Canada vs. Latvia in game 1. The Canadians finished the exhibition round undefeated, 3-0, with wins over Sweden (6-2), Finland (3-0) and the Czech Republic (3-2). Latvia only played 2 exhibition games – a 3-2 win over Russia in overtime and a 6-4 loss to Austria.
Edmonton Oilers 1st round draft pick Jordan Eberle earned 2 goals and 3 assists in 3 games played during the exhibition round.
