Gillies, Sieloff & U.S. top Monahan & Canada in final WJC evaluation camp game
CALGARY, AB -- The USA ended their National Junior Evaluation Camp with a bang, handing Canada a 5-1 loss in their final game this week.
Calgary Flames prospects Patrick Sieloff, who is a captain candidate for the Americans if he makes the trip to Sweden for the 2014 World Junior Championship, and Jon Gillies, who many believe will be the USA's starting netminder in the tournament, were in the lineup on Saturday.
Gillies made 24 saves in his 60:00 of play.
Sean Monahan was the lone Flames prospect in the lineup for Canada as Mark Jankowski and Emile Poirier were both scratches. Monahan was held pointless in the game and took one minor penalty, a slashing call at 3:50 in the third period.
Riley Barber, Ian McCoshen, Quentin Shore (2) and Stefan Matteau tallied for the USA while 2014 draft eligible forward Sam Reinhart scored Canada's lone goal.
