Dominic Larocque stopped all seven shots he faced for his fifth career shutout as Canada opened the World Sledge Hockey Challenge on Sunday with a 3-0 victory over Norway.

Greg Westlake and Ben Delaney gave the Canadians (1-0-0) a two-goal advantage in the first period. Bryan Sholomicki had the other in the second.

Kjell Christian Hamar made 18 saves in net for Norway (0-1-0).

Both teams went 0-for-2 on the power play.

Canada continues preliminary-round play on Monday night against South Korea, which fell 4-0 to the United States earlier Sunday.
