Pickard Posts Shutout In Team Canada\'s Final WJC Tune-Up
Preds prospect Chet Pickard made 20 saves for a 7-0 shutout over Slovakia in Team Canada's final tune-up game for this year's World Junior Championships. Pickard made 12 saves in the first period, a period in which Canada was out-shot 12-9, to allow the Canadians to escape the first period with a 1-0 advantage.

Team Canada added two goals in the second frame, before breaking the game open with three scores in a 3:06 span during the middle of the third period and then adding a goal in the final minute of regulation to close out the scoring.
