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.
