2019-20 Egon Spengler Cup (Zach Fucale Ed.)

Post #1 by chicpea » Thu Dec 26, 2019 8:17 pm

Well, the always unheralded Spengler Cup kicked off today in Davos in everyone's favourite hockey rink, the Eisstadium.

Canada was led to victory in their first match by none other than Winnipeg's very own Kevin Clark of the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers and, of course Zaccharia Fucale of Laval. Their next game is on Saturday versus the host team.

Good luck Team Canada! (roster here: https://hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/team-cana ... teamid=151)

Led by hockey legend Craig T McTavish, Canada outplays hometown HC Davos to a 5-1 victory and earns a bye through to the semis!

Unsung hero Kevin Clark scored his leading 4th goal of the tourney - and this time it was a highlight-reel snipe (at .32 mark in SLO MO).

Well, everyone, we've done it again. Having definitively defeated TPS Turku today in the semi-final, Canada is off to the gold medal game of the 2019 Spengler Cup!

The score was 6-0 (take that, Juniors) and homeless hockey hero, K. Clark scored two more (and an assist) to extend his goal-scoring lead in Europe's best-known tournament. And yes, Z. Fucale of the ECHL Laval Rockette had the shutout in victory and in style.

Tomorrow, Canada will play for Gold vs Martin Růžička and his Trinec Ocelari, the greatest current men's team in Eastern Europe, and former home club of such great players as Radek Bonk, Joseff Balej, Tomas Pospisil, Vaclav Varada, Marek Zagrapan and BC's very own David Musil.

See the highlights below:



Good luck to both teams tomorrow as Canada chases its 16th championship in 114 years of the tournament.

Congratulations to Team Canada, Winners of the 2019 Spengler Cup!


Correct! Canada has won the Spengler Cup for 2019! The win, Canada's 16th, puts Canada ahead of host HC Davos for team with most Spengler Cups in history.

The final, Canada vs Trinec Ocelari, saw Canada cruise to a 4-0 victory, capping an all-round dominant performance throughout the tournament, with some local punditry suggesting this was the greatest Canadian Spenglr team ever assembled, with the team outscoring its tournament opponents 19-2. Indeed, with such household names as Eric Fehr, Dustin Jeffries, David Desharnais, and Josh Jooris, who could think otherwise?

Of particular note was the play of forward Kevin Clark, Defenceman Maxim Noreau, and goaltender Zacharia Fucalé, whose .986 save percentage left local children inspired enough to build a snow statue of him outside the famous arena. All three players were named to the tournament All-Star Team.

Please enjoy the highlights below and I will see you all again next year!

Literally no one cares about this, except maybe 3-4 folks in Moose Jaw.

Your ignorance on this subject is stunning both in its depravity and its depth. I have no idea how you even got let into this great country.

The Spengler Cup has been cancelled. It feels like World War II.
