Canada defeats Czech squad to capture 16th Spengler Cup title

Canada has won the Spengler Cup for the fourth time in the past five years.

The Canadian team, comprised mostly of European-based pros, including many ex-NHLers, beat Trinec Ocelari of the Czech Republic 4-0 in the final of the annual Christmas tournament on Tuesday in Davos, Switzerland.

It was the 16th overall Spengler Cup title for Canada, breaking a tie with host HC Davos for most in tournament history.

Canada went 4-0 this year and outscored opponents 19-2, setting a record for fewest goals allowed in the tournament.

“Every year we have a different group of guys, but it’s always so much fun to come here. [General manager] Sean Burke and Hockey Canada have done such a great job of putting this team together,” said captain Maxim Noreau.
