SOCHI, Russia -- Canada used a balanced scoring attack in a 10-1 rout of Switzerland on Monday to remain unbeaten at the IIHF under-18 world championship.
Josh Morrissey of the Prince Albert Raiders and Laurent Dauphin of the Chicoutimi Sagueneens scored two goals apiece to help Canada improve to 3-0 in preliminary-round play. Six other players scored for Canada and Spencer Martin of the Mississauga Steelheads made 20 saves for the win.
"All four lines competed very hard and we kind of wore the Swiss down as the game progressed," said head coach Don Hay. "So I was just really happy with the total team effort."
Canada opened the tournament last week with a 4-1 win over Slovakia and followed it up with a 3-1 victory over Germany. Canada will play undefeated Sweden on today in the preliminary-round finale for both teams.
Quarter-final play is set to begin Thursday and the medal games are scheduled for Sunday.
