Canada won the Gold at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial men’s under-18 hockey tournament

Goaltender Julio Billia made 21 saves Saturday and Canada blanked the United States 4-0 in the final of the Ivan Hlinka Memorial men’s under-18 hockey tournament.

It’s Canada’s sixth straight gold medal at the summer event, co-hosted by the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Canada looked dominant in a rematch of last year’s under-18 world championship final, which Canada won 3-2.

It's been ten years since Herb Brooks died.

It’s been 10 years since his death, but Herb Brooks is still never far from John Harrington’s mind.

"It’s hard not to find yourself wondering what Herb would do or say about certain situations," said Harrington of the man who coached he and his teammates on the legendary 1980 U.S. Olympic team to the gold medal.

"He had a huge impact on me like he did on a lot of other people over the years."
