100th International Cap for Scott Tupper

March 3, 2010

DELHI, INDIA – In the World Cup match against Germany, Scott TUPPER earned his 100th International Cap for Canada, a remarkable milestone for a 23-year old player.

Scott first played for the National Team during the Test Series against Scotland in April 2005 in Vancouver. He quickly made an impression and became a mainstay on the roster. After missing the end of the 2006 season, he came back in 2007 and established himself as an integral part of the solid Canadian defense, winning the 2007 Pan American Games and 2009 Pan American Cups in dramatic fashion to qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games and the current World Cup, an exceptional array of experiences for a young player.

In the last year, Scott decided to go to Europe to develop his game and has been playing in the German League and in the EHL (European Hockey League) with the Club An Der Alster in Hamburg, rubbing shoulders and standing his ground with the elite of hockey every week.

Scott ranks the wins in the Pan American competitions as the best memories of his young career. “Nothing beats the feeling of qualifying for a world level competition”, said Scott from Delhi. “Playing in the Olympic Games is of course special and the World Cup in India will certainly stay as a strong memory”.
