the north face jumper given Canada a test
Connor Hellebuyck believes Team North America was on the verge of doing something great at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, had they only been able to qualify for the playoffs.
Team North America, the entry comprised of players 23 and under from Canada and the United States, finished the tournament with a record of 2 1 but missed out on the playoffs when Russia defeated Finland.
be honest, I think we should still be in it. We took five minutes off and it cost us the tournament, said Hellebuyck, who was back on the ice with the Winnipeg Jets at training camp on Saturday after suiting up for Team North America. yeah, we definitely would have given Canada a run for their money and I think a lot of people were hoping to see that. It would have been fun to see.
was ridiculous how fast that (North American) team is, it was so fun to watch, whether you were in the bleachers or the front row. Playing with them was a huge honour for me. went into the tournament as the third goalie, but was elevated to a backup role behind John Gibson after Matt Murray suffered an injury.
