Quotes

 

“We didn’t finish the way we wanted, but in the end everyone got a great experience. We know more about how to act on and off the ice. I am happy to have been part of a great group of guys.”

– Michael Rasmussen (South Surrey, B.C./Tri-City, WHL), Team Canada Black

 

“We didn’t have the start we wanted, but in general we played a good game. Their goalie made great saves. Players learned a lot during the whole tournament. We were getting a lot of penalties in the first games and today we were better. I am proud of my team.”

– head coach Marco Pietroniro (Montreal, Que.), Team Canada Black

 

“It’s disappointing, but we worked out butts off and the effort was outstanding from all 22 guys. It’s devastating for all of us, but we worked hard for it and I thought we deserved to win.”

                        – Jordan Bellerive (North Vancouver, B.C./Lethbridge, WHL), Team Canada Red

 

“I thought the effort was outstanding. I thought we played really well, and I think we deserved a better fate. But that doesn’t always happen. I’m proud of our boys; they played a really good hockey game.”

                        – head coach Kris Knoblauch (Imperial, Sask.), Team Canada Red

 

“It is a great feeling, there’s no doubt. We knew it was a matter of time before we would put a puck in the net. We worked hard for it, guys are proud; we beat a great hockey team.”

– Evan Bouchard (Burlington, Ont./London, OHL), Team Canada White

 

“We will need all of our players against Russia, that is what brought us here. Everyone is important and knows his role. We will have to start strong.”

– head coach Scott Walker (Cambridge, Ont.), Team Canada White
