DAVOS, Switzerland -- Glen Metropolit hasnt played an NHL game since 2010, but on Thursday, the oldest player on Canadas Spengler Cup roster showed why hes the captain of the Canadian squad. After nearly scoring on his first shift of the game, the 39-year-old Metropolit -- whos played for Lugano in the Swiss league the past two seasons -- picked up a goal in the first period and assisted on Derek Walsers game winner in the third as Canada opened up the Spengler Cup with a 5-4 victory over the HC Vitkovice Steel of the Czech Republic. "Even at his age, on the blue-line and in the offensive zone, hes still one of the best players in the game in Switzerland so thats where hes going to be really good for us," head coach Doug Shedden said. "Hes played for me before and thats why I made him captain. This could be his last Spengler Cup and his children are here visiting from Florida. "Its just something that gets him excited about playing." Byron Ritchie, Micki DuPont, and Alexandre Bolduc also scored for Canada in a back-and-forth offensive game that saw leads slip away between both teams four times. Rudolf Huna, Peter Huzeka, Roman Szturic and Lukas Kucsera scored for Vitkovice. Vitkovices Filip Sindelar was the busier of the two goaltenders, stopping 37 of 42 shots in the losing effort. Canadas Chris Mason made 18 saves. "We were outshooting them pretty good all night," Shedden said. "We really carried the play against them." Ritchies goal tied the game at 4-4 at 7:58 of the third period, and Walser beat Sindelar off passes from Anthony Stewart and Metropolit at 13:47 to pull Canada ahead for good. Bolduc opened the scoring with an unassisted goal at 2:30 of the first period, but Kucsera responded with a goal for the Czech club team less than two minutes later. Canada took the lead again on Metropolits goal, and Vitkovice replied to take a 2-2 tie into the first intermission. The second period proved costly for Canada when a turnover gave Vitkovice a 4-3 lead 11 seconds after DuPont tied the game 3-3 on a power play. Shedden said the mistake could be chalked up to unfamiliarity between his players, whove had just one practice and one morning skate together before their first game. "The problem was we gave up some easy scoring chances off some miscues and thats going to happen with guys who havent played together, and it happens every night anyway if you have played together." Shedden said. "I thought their goalie really kept them in it because we really crashed the net all night, and it showed the heart of the Canadians. "We were down going into the third period and we thought we were playing well enough, we just had to keep at it and we did that. You work hard enough eventually youre going get rewarded with a couple goals." Canada plays host HC Davos on Saturday. Victor Moses Jersey .

Vermaelen has lost his place in Arsenals team to Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny, and manager Arsene Wenger wont stand in the centre backs way if he decides to move on. United is on the look-out for defenders after seeing Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra leave in the off-season. "Are Man United one of the teams to have made an offer?" Wenger said of the interest in Vermaelen. "I think they could be in the group." Wenger said he would prefer to sell Vermaelen, who was once Arsenals captain, to a foreign club. British media have reported that Barcelona have lodged a bid. "He needs to play now," Wenger said. "He has shown ann outstanding attitude but he is in a position where we wouldnt stand in his way if he finds an interesting opportunity.dddddddddddd" Vermaelen, who joined Arsenal from Ajax in July 2009, has had problems with his form and fitness over the past two seasons. With just over a week to go before the start of the Premier League season, Arsenals trio of World Cup winners -- Mesut Ozil, Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski -- are close to returning to training. None of them, however, will be playing in the first game of the campaign, against Crystal Palace on Aug. 16. "You either bring them back quickly and then you lose them in October," Wenger said, "or you give them the needed rest and build them up again." England winger Theo Walcott, who missed the World Cup because of a knee injury, is expected to return by the start of September.
