Munich, Germany - Posting a perfect 3-0 record, Canada's National Men's Team captured the 2002 Deutschland Cup Sunday afternoon in Hanover. A 2-0 win over host Germany sealed Canada’s victory of the four-nations tournament.

Perfect record: Ian Gordon of Schwenningen backstopped Canada to three wins

Canada's victory marked the second time Canada captured this event. After winning for the first time in 2000, the team finished third at last year's Deutschland Cup.

In front of 7,180 fans at Hanover’s Preussag Arena, Calgary Flames prospect Micki Dupont and Mannheim Adler forward Todd Hlushko scored for Canada which finished the event with a perfect 3-0 record. The Canadians had opened the tournament with wins over Team USA (3-1) and Switzerland (4-1).

Schwenningen Wild Wings netminder Ian Gordon registered the shutout, turning aside 24 shots. Canada outshot Germany 29-24.

Team USA finished second after blanking Switzerland 1-0 Sunday night. Switzerland, which had won the Deutschland Cup last year, ended up winless in last place.

The Germans claimed third place after Saturday’s convincing 5-2 victory over their Swiss arch rivals.

Canada's entry for the Deutschland Cup was coached by Gary Green, who still holds the distinction of having been the youngest head coach in NHL history. In November 1979 the then 26-year-old was hired by the Washington Capitals. In his two year stint in the US capital, he posted a 50-88-29 record.

Canada's National Men's Team for international events such as the Deutschland Cup is comprised of Canadians either currently playing in Europe or in the American Hockey League (AHL). Six players on the roster were on loan from NHL teams: Micki Dupont (Calgary), Michael Henrich (Edmonton), Steve Kariya (Vancouver), Travis Roche (Minnesota), Peter Sarno (Edmonton) and Jonathan Sim (Dallas).
