The Canada Men’s Hockey team went down 3-6 to a resistant Korea on day one of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup tournament.
It was goals by Kim Jung Hoo (14th minute), Lee Namyong (19th, 31st, 43rd) and Jang Jong Hyun (20th, 44th) that gave Korea the early lead.
The first three quarters was all Korea. The final 15 minutes saw Canada make desperate attempts to make a come-back. Matthew Sarmento (45th), Adam Froese (45th) and debutant Fin Boothroyd (50th) did well in the final quarter to put Canada on a scoreboard.
