2017 IIHF World Championship Canada vs Germany                                                                                 

PARIS, France – Team Canada moves on to the semifinal at the 2017 IIHF World Championship after downing the host Germans by a score of 2-1 in Thursday’s quarter-final match-up.

  • Mark Scheifele (Toronto/Winnipeg, NHL) scored one goal and assisted on the other Canadian goal by Jeff Skinner (Toronto/Carolina, NHL) to lead the Canadian offence in the quarter-final.
  • Team Canada outshot the German team 50-20; Calvin Pickard (Winnipeg/Colorado, NHL) earned his fourth win in as many starts at the tournament.

Next game: Team Canada’s path to a medal game now goes through Team Russia in the semifinal on Saturday, May 20, at 9 a.m. ET.

 “They have a lot of skill. We’re familiar with a lot of their players from the NHL. They’re very crafty and skilled. They’re going to come at us hard, so we’ve got to play like we have in the last three games and we’ll be fine.” – Calvin Pickard on facing the Russians in Saturday’s semifinal

“Germany gave us everything we could handle. We kind of knew this was the type of game this was going to be, and it was imperative that we get the lead. And we did. Skinner’s goal at the end of the second was big for us. I think frustration was starting to mount a little bit on the team, and Skinner’s goal kind of calmed everybody down. It was a phenomenal environment; just to be a part of that, I’ll always remember the German fans and the chants. They were very respectful to both teams, and they really cheered for their team. It was just – as I said, I’ll always remember being part of that.” – Jon Cooper, Team Canada’s head coach, reflecting on the game and the atmosphere in the LANXESS arena for the quarter-final
