Jacky Benaim of Thornhill, Ontario scored four goals to lead the undefeated Team Canada White to an overwhelming victory Wednesday at the second World Jewish Hockey Tournament in Metulla. Team Canada White, coached by former NHL star Steve Thomas, defeated Team Canada Red, coached by ex-NHL defenseman Jeff Beukeboom, 9-2 in the finals at the Canada Centre in the northernmost spot in Israel. Noah Schwartz of Toronto, who plays for the Hamilton Jr Red Wings of the Ontario Provincial Junior League, added a goal and two assists in the one-sided win. In the Over-18 division, Team USA obliterated Sherry Bassin's Team Canada with a 6-0 victory in the final last night. Former University of Connecticut player Alec Kirschner scored three goals for the US and former Nashville Predators' farmhand, Dov Grumet-Morris, was impressive in goal in posting the shutout. The World Jewish tournament was played to a near sold-out crowd for 10 days with nine teams from five different countries.
