Canada goes for gold in U 18 tournament

While the rumours fly back in Vancouver that perhaps Pat Quinn may be returning to the Canucks, the man himself is keeping busy guiding a group of young Canucks in the World Under 18 Junior tournament in Kazan, Russia.

Quinn has taken an enthusiastic band of Canadian hockey players in quest of Gold, consiting mainly of players from the CHL who played for teams that missed out on the playoffs in their respective leagues.

It seems they'll be doing their work in relative anonymity however, as information on the tournament is proving to be hard to find other than the IIHF website and TSN's website.
The Russian Federations host site for the tournament can be found here.

TSN is set to pick up the play on April 18, leading up they hope to the Gold Medal game on April 23rd.

The full schedule for the tournament can be found here, we'll track Team Canada's progress, with updates as we come across them.
