Lotz and Canada U18 Team are living the dream with a World Championship :

Canada has ended four years of American dominance at the world under-18 men's hockey championship. GDI trained netminder Austin Lotz was the third goaltender from the team and 1 of 7 players to be on the team from the WHL. Frederik Gauthier's second-period goal stood as the winner as Canada rallied past the United States 3-2 to win the world title. The Americans had a 2-1 lead at the midway point of the game and outshot the Canadians for all three periods 35-12. The staff at GDI would like to congratulate Lotz and the rest of the team for their outstanding accomplishment!
