Local hockey players medal internationally over weekend


Marie-Philip Poulin (Beauceville, Que./Montreal, CWHL) opened and closed the scoring, but the United States scored five of the six in between, handing Canada’s National Women’s Team a 5-3 loss Saturday in the gold medal game at the 2016 4 Nations Cup.

It’s the second year in a row the Americans have beaten Canada in the final. Overall, the Canadians still lead the all-time gold medal count, 14 to seven.

Rocanville's Jessica Campbell was a member of the Canadian squad.


Adam Bokvist scored the game-winning goal on the power play early in the third period, sending Sweden to a 2-1 win over Canada Black in the gold medal game Saturday night at the 2016 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

It’s the second U17 gold for the Swedes, who also topped the podium in 2013 in Victoriaville, Que.

Kevin Clark (Winnipeg, Man./Brynäs IF, SHL) found the back of the net twice and Nick Petersen (Wakefield, Que./Eisbären Berlin, DEL) assisted on both goals to lead Canada’s National Men’s Team to a 3-1 win against Germany on Sunday.

With the winning effort, Canada finished the 2016 Deutschland Cup in second place following the three-day round-robin tournament in which it had two wins, and one shootout loss to first place Slovakia.

Clark opened the scoring just over five minutes into the game with the help of Petersen.

Canada would add two more goals to its early lead before the end of the first period, beginning with the second goal in as many games for Derek Roy (Rockland, Ont./OMSK Avangard, KHL) at 17:24.
