Canada moves in to semifinals in 2018 Paralympic Winter Games, Gangneung, South Korea

Quesnel resident and defenceman James Gemmell and Canada’s Para Hockey Team went undefeated through preliminary-round play and punched its ticket to the semifinals at the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games with an 8-0 win over Norway Monday afternoon in Gangneung, South Korea.

By the numbers

• Rob Armstrong (Erin, Ont.) and Billy Bridges (Summerside, P.E.I.) scored two goals each in the victory for Canada.

• Brad Bowden (Orton, Ont.), Liam Hickey (St. John’s, N.L.), Tyler McGregor (Forest, Ont.), and Greg Westlake (Toronto) notched the other Canadian goals.

• Steve Arsenault (Spruce Grove, Alta.), Dominic Cozzolino (Mississauga, Ont.), and Adam Dixon (Midland, Ont.) had a pair of assists each.

• Dominic Larocque (Quebec City, Que.) recorded the victory for Canada having to make just five saves in the game, but he came up big on a couple of them.
