    “Reaching 200 points means I’ve been playing with a lot of really good teammates and playing for a really long time. Reflecting on the past ten years as a young 18-year old kid when I made this team to now being a 29-year old mature adult; there are great people that come into this program, everyone has an impact on you and it’s so special to get to represent Canada and experience that. Being an adult, chasing a puck around is something I fell in love with at three years old and moments like this help you reflect on how fortunate we all are to be part of this. The players I join are the ones I learned from, they were mentors to me and pioneers of this sport and all of them catapulted our sport to a new level.”

    • McGregor on his 200-point career milestone.

    “I think we had the advantage of coming in rested, the Korea-Czechia game yesterday was pretty tightly played and physical and unfortunately, they also lost a player to injury. Our guys were rested and ready to go with fans and family, plus [having] the Snowbirds here really energized our team. Getting one early really settled the nerves and allowed our guys to focus on playing.”
    -           Head coach Russ Herrington (Unionville, Ont.) on getting off to a good start

    “Thinking about where I started is special to reflect on and there are so many people along the way I couldn’t do it without, including my teammates, and tonight was another example of that.”

    “Anytime you can get off to a start like we did in Game 1, you are feeling pretty good. Moose Jaw has been treating us well and the fans were great tonight, so we’re looking forward to tomorrow. Czechia is a big team, they like to move the puck. We have faced them a few times this year and they always put up a good game against us and hopefully we get off to a good start again.”

    • Cozzolino on reaching 100 points and assessing the team’s performance
