  Connor McDavid helps Canada demolish Korea 10-0 at hockey worlds Canada bounced back from a loss to the United States in the opening game at the world championship by trashing Korea 10-0 on Sunday in Herning, Denmark. Also Olympic champion Russia again displayed its offensive might in a 7-0 rout of Austria. After losing 5-4 to the U.S. in a penalty shootout, Canada was ruthless against Korea, a championship newcomer in a Group B game in Herning. Captain Connor McDavid scored his first goal of the tournament and added two assists, and Tyson Jost scored twice and had an assist to lead Canada. Pierre-Luc Dubois and Joel Edmundson also had a goal and two assists each.

HERNING, Denmark - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a goal and an assist as Canada finished off its round-robin schedule with a workmanlike 3-0 win over Germany on Tuesday at the world hockey championship.

Less than 18 hours after Connor McDavid's overtime winner against Latvia clinched a quarterfinal berth, Canada controlled Tuesday's game from start to finish at Jyske Bank Boxen.

Just 20 seconds into the first period, Brayden Schenn put the Canadians on the board when he directed a pass in the slot from Nugent-Hopkins past sliding German goaltender Niklas Treutle.

Nugent-Hopkins scored his fourth of the tournament at 8:14 of the second period with a shot that went between a screened Treutle's pads.

Canada adds Sharks' Vlasic to hockey worlds roster

  Canada adds Sharks' Vlasic to hockey worlds roster Canada is adding defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic to its world hockey championship roster. The veteran blue-liner became available when the San Jose Sharks were eliminated by Vegas in the second round of the NHL playoffs. Vlasic will be trying for a third world championship medal in four appearances after helping Canada earn silver in 2009 and 2017. He also helped Canada to titles at the 2014 Winter Olympics and the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. Vlasic just finished his 12th NHL season with San Jose, scoring a career-high 11 goals and adding 21 assists in 81 games.

McDavid, Canada's leading scorer picked up his 12th and 13th points of the tournament with assists on Canada's first two goals.

In the third, Tyson Jost converted on a pass into the slot from Joel Edmundson for his fourth of the tournament.

Starting in back-to-back games, Darcy Kuemper wasn't busy but stayed calm when Germany was able to generate traffic near his crease in the second period. He stopped 12 shots for his first shutout of the tournament.

With a quarterfinal berth already locked down, Tuesday’s game served as a tune-up for the playoff round as coach Bill Peters to continue to experiment with line combinations and work on special teams.

For a fourth-straight game, the power play sputtered. Canada has now failed to score on its last 16 man-advantage opportunities.

McDavid's hat trick leads Canada over Norway

  McDavid's hat trick leads Canada over Norway Connor McDavid had a hat trick while Curtis McElhinney and Darcy Kuemper shared the shutout as Canada beat Norway 5-0 in Group B action Thursday at the world hockey championship. Bo Horvat added his first two goals of the tournament to round out the scoring. After opening the round-robin portion of their schedule with three games in four days, Canada's players looked rested and energized against Norway after two days off — none more so than McDavid. Canada's captain walked out from behind the net before firing high over the blocker of Norway goaltender Lars Haugen to open the scoring just 1:23 into the first period.

PRAGUE (AP) — Canada eased to another high-scoring victory at the ice hockey world championship on Sunday by overwhelming Germany 10-0. Last year's runner-up Finland rebounded from a loss to the United States by beating Denmark 3 - 0 in Group B. Jussi Jokinen, Janne Pesonen and

Germany have knocked Canada out of the men’s hockey tournament at the Olympics with a shocking 4- 3 upset in the semi-finals.

Kyle Turris, eager to get into action even though his equipment didn't arrive by game time, made his 2018 Canada debut in borrowed gear and was inserted onto the second power-play unit.

Pierre-Luc Dubois returned to the lineup after missing Monday's game with a lower-body injury, while Josh Bailey was scratched with a lower-body injury of his own. On defence, Ryan Pulock drew back into the lineup, while Thomas Chabot did not dress.

The Germans knocked Canada out of gold-medal contention in the semifinal of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in February, but only 10 players from that roster returned to suit up at the world championship.

Despite the addition of NHL players Leon Draisaitl (Edmonton Oilers) and Dennis Seidenberg (New York Islanders), the Germans were unable to build off their Olympic success in Denmark. Marco Sturm's group will not advance to the quarterfinal after finishing sixth in Group B with just one regulation win and one overtime win in seven games.

Tuesday's win guarantees Canada a third-place finish in Group B. The Canadians will now travel to Copenhagen and cross over to play the second-place team from Group A in Thursday's quarterfinal, wither Sweden or Russia. A quarterfinal win will give Canada the opportunity to play for a medal for the fourth straight year after winning gold in 2015 and 2016 and silver in 2017.

In early action on Tuesday, Finland clinched first place in Group B with a 6-2 win over the United States and Switzerland locked down fourth place in Group A with a 5-1 win over France. Slovakia beat Belarus 7-4 in a match between teams already eliminated from medal-round contention.

Thursday's quarterfinals in Herning will see Finland meet Switzerland while the United States plays the Czech Republic.

Edmonton Oilers at the Worlds: Gold medal, All-Star berth for Adam Larsson; disappointment for everyone else as Canada crashes to fourthAmong the victors was Edmonton Oilers’ defenceman Adam Larsson, who came as close as any Swede to deciding things in “real hockey” when he pinged a slapper off the post with 2 seconds remaining in the 20-minute, 4-on-4 overtime. Larsson had a superb 10-game run and was named to the tournament All-Star team, on merit to these eyes. He was joined by three other Swedes including his partner on a dynamic D pairing, namely Oliver Ekman-Larsson.
