The Canadian team added goaltender Matt Climie to its Spengler Cup roster Tuesday as a replacement for injured netminder Drew MacIntyre.

Climie, a 32-year-old native of Leduc, Alta., is in his first season with the Straubing Tigers of the German league. He has spent most of his pro career in the American Hockey League.

Jeff Glass earned the shutout for Canada in a 2-0 win over HC Davos on Monday. Team officials decided after the game that a replacement for MacIntyre would be needed due to an unspecified injury.

Canada will play the host side again in the semifinals Wednesday at Vaillant Arena.

The championship game is scheduled for Thursday. Canada last won the Spengler Cup in 2012.
