Canada keeps winning and Liam Hickey keeps scoring at the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.
Hickey, the 19-year-old forward from St. John’s, had a goal and an assist as the Canadian men’s sledge hockey team blanked Norway 8-0 in its final preliminary-round game earlier today in Ganeung, South Korea.
Canada went 3-0 in its round-robin pool, outscoring the opposition 35-0 in the process.
Hickey scored at least a goal in every game and had five goals and three assists in the tourney.
Canada will play either the United States or South Korea in a cross-over semifinal on Thursday. Which depends on the result of the head-to-matchup of those two countries who  are 1-2 in the standings in the other pool heading into their game on Tuesday.
