Canada opened tournament play at the 2019 Hlinka Gretzky Cup Monday with a 6-0 blanking of Finland in Breclav, Czech Republic.

Seth Jarvis (Winnipeg, Man. / Portland Winterhawks) scored twice while Ridly Greig (Lethbridge, Alta. / Brandon Wheat Kings) added a goal and an assist in the victory. Justin Sourdif (Surrey, B.C. / Vancouver Giants) picked up an assist on Canada’s sixth goal of the game.

Like Saturday’s pre-tournament game against Slovakia, Canada scored three goals in the first period to build an insurmountable lead. They scored a single goal in the second and added two more in the third. The final shots were 34-17 for Canada.

Preliminary-round action continues Tuesday when the Canadians take on Switzerland (9:30 a.m. ET/6:30 a.m. PT).
