Quotes

 

“It’s definitely nice. We can get our confidence going. Our team is starting to click, and we can keep moving forward, keep the positives and fix the negatives. Our next is against the U.S., and it’s going to be our biggest test, so we’re looking forward to it.”

               – Tyson Jost (Kelowna, B.C./Penticton, BCHL), Team Canada West

“I didn’t think we had a great start tonight; first period we just weren’t right, in comparison to our game against the Russians [on Friday night]. I thought after that we settled down, were able to get more of a spread in the second and third. We got a couple power-play goals to get that 3-1 lead, which was good. I still think we need to play with more discipline; that was one of our issues tonight, and those are all preventable penalties.”

               – Tim Fragle, head coach, Team Canada West

                                             

“Having a goal in my first game means a lot, especially because I had a lot of family and friends in the stands. Contributing to a game close to home in front of our fans is priceless.”

               – Ben Sokay (Port Hope, Ont./Wellington, OJHL), Team Canada East

“All the guys had a good game; we saw energy on the ice. I really like the character of our team.”

               – Jason Clarke, head coach, Team Canada East
