Tyler McGregor scores five goals as Canada wins twice at Paralympics

Rob Armstrong and Summerside's Billy Bridges led the way with two goals apiece and helped Canada's Paralympic hockey team to an 8-0 win over Norway on Monday at the Paralympics in South Korea.

The veteran forward scored five goals, including both game-winners, as the Canadian para hockey team won its first two games on the weekend.

In ice hockey, the hosts beat Japan while in the second match, Canada thrashed Sweden by 17-0.

The offensive barrage was sparked by Tyler McGregor's (Forest, Ont.) four goals, including the first of the game, which was his 100th career point.

McGregor opened the scoring 1:52 into the first period on a power play.

Canada outshot Sweden 45-2.

"It was a balanced team effort and I like the way the guys were unselfish, with nearly every goal having two assists with it".

Russian paralympic athlete Ekaterina Rumyantseva won gold in a ski race at 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang. The bronze-medal game is Friday at 11 p.m. and the gold-medal game is Saturday at 11 p.m.
