College Hockey:
Providence’s Army Coaches U.S. to Second at Ivan Hlinka Tournament

The U.S. Under-18 Select Team coached by Providence coach Tim Army finished second at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, falling 1-0 to Canada on Saturday in the championship game in Piestany, Slovakia.

“Our guys gave it everything they had today,” Army said in a statement. “We couldn’t have asked for anything more from these players, who really came together in a short period of time and played well against tough international competition all week.”

Army, who is starting his sixth season at Providence, previously was an assistant coach for the U.S. national team in 1994 and 1996 and for the U.S. World Cup team in 2004.

Canada’s Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored the game’s only goal less than two minutes into the first period.

Stephen Michalek stopped 23 shots for the Americans.
