Michael Kirkpatrick and Team Canada will play for gold at the 2013 Winter Universiade in Trentino, Italy.
Team Canada, made up entirely of Atlantic University Sport players, advanced to tomorrow’s Gold Medal Game with a 2-1 victory over Russia this afternoon. Kazakhstan defeated the United States in the other semi-final and will be Canada’s opponent.
Canada went 2-1 in the preliminary round with their only loss coming against none other than Kazakhstan. Tomorrow’s game should be a good one.
Kirkpatrick sits in a tie for seventh in tournament scoring with two goals and six assists in five games.
- Sea Dogs draft pick Jack Eichel was named the USA’s Player of the Game in their 4-2 world junior pre-tournament loss to Sweden.
- Canada beat Finland 4-2 in pre-tournament action. QMJHL leading scorer Anthony Mantha had a goal in that game.
- If you have Eastlink TV, tonight’s Sea Dogs/Screaming Eagles game can be watched there.
