Tanner Howe, Ethan Gauthier, Calum Ritchie and Brayden Yager scored for the goals for Canada, who beat Sweden 4-1 in the final of the 2022 Hlinka Gretzky Cup at the Peavey Mart Centrium in Red Deer Alberta. Hugo Pettersson scored the only goal for Sweden, who were outshot 36-26. This was the first time Canada won the U18 event since 2018. Finland defeated Czechia by a 3-1 count to take the bronze medal.

The Edmonton Oilers signed forward Tyler Benson to a one-year, two-way contract. Benson, 24, who is from Edmonton, played 29 games for the Oilers last season. He scored his first NHL goal on February 20 against the Minnesota Wild. (The Copper and Blue)

Defenseman Maxime Lajoie and the Carolina Hurricanes avoided a scheduled arbitration hearing by agreeing to a one-year, two-way deal. Lajoie will receive $750K in the NHL and $125K in the AHL, with a $200K guarantee. Lajoie spent the majority of 2021-22 with the AHL champions Chicago Wolves. (Canes Country)
