Para hockey gold for Team Canada

Regina Leader-Post - - SPORTS -

Canada de­feated the United States 4-1 Thurs­day to cap­ture a gold medal at the world para hockey cham­pi­onship. Tyler McGre­gor of For­est, Ont., scored twice while Brad Bowden of Or­ton, Ont., and Liam Hickey of St. John’s, N.L., also scored. “We played smart, fast and un­selfish — the Cana­dian way. We took hits to make plays and stuck to the game plan,” head coach Ken Babey said. Do­minic Larocque of Que­bec City made 12 saves for the win. While Canada has won four gold medals at the bi­en­nial tour­na­ment, this is their first since 2013. The team also set­tled for bronze at the 2014 Par­a­lympics.
