It doesn’t count in the standings, but it was a timely tune-up for coach Jim Fetter and Canada’s under-18 women’s hockey team
at Kirkkonummi, Finland. The Canadian squad earned a 4-3 shootout win Wednesday over C2 Pojat, a Finnish boys team that’s the equivalent of a bantam-level squad in Canada. It was the final exhibition game for Canada leading up to the world under-18 event. The Canadians will face Hungary in the tournament opener for both teams Saturday.
