Billy Bridges and James Dunn each scored a hat trick as Canada's para hockey team blanked South Korea 11-0 at a pre-Paralympic tournament in Bridgewater, N.S., on Friday.

Greg Westlake scored twice, while Liam Hickey had a goal and two assists to record 100 career points for Canada's national team.

Zach Lavin and Adam Dixon each had singles on a night that saw the powerhouse Canadian squad outshoot 40-4.

Adam Kingsmill got the shutout for Canada.

The Canadians are now 4-0 in the series against Korea, outscoring their opponents 35-1.

Canada is using the games as a tune-up for the Beijing Paralympics, which open on March 4. Canada has five medals in seven Paralympic appearances, winning gold in 2006. The Canadians captured silver at the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
