Canada Wins Again in Norway

Lillehammer, Norway | by Manny Paiva  

Roberts scores game winner as Canada rolls to 6-0 win, first place in division.

Canada has improved to "3 and 1" at the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games.

The Canadians shut out host Norway 6-0 Thursday for their third win in a row at the tournament in Lillehammer.

Owen Sound native Connor Roberts scored the first goal of the game -- the Grey Bruce Highlander has scored in all of Canada's victories.

Collingwood native Allan McShane also scored for Canada.

Jared McIsaac paced Canada's offence with a goal and two assists.

Olivier Rodrigue of Quebec made only two saves for the shutout, as Canada outshot Norway 37-2.

The Canadian win -- combined with the United States’ 4-2 victory over Russia -- means Canada finishes first in the round robin.

They will face Finland in the first semifinal on Friday at 11 AM Eastern.

Canada beat the Finns 5-1 in their preliminary round meeting on Monday.
