SERIES VS. CANADA
Since the 2014-15 season, the two teams have met 22 times, with the U.S. posting a 14-3-1-4 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record. All-time, the teams have met on 94 occasions with Team USA holding a 28-10-8-47-1 (W-OTW-OTL-L-T). A year ago, the two teams met in the gold-medal game of the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games where Declan Farmer (Tampa, Fla.) scored with 30 seconds in regulation and tallied again 3:30 into overtime to give the U.S. an unprecedented third-straight Paralympic gold medal.
LAST GAME: USA 3, CAN 4
Brody Roybal (Northlake, Ill.) registered a goal and an assist and five other players tallied a point but the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team fell to Canada, 4-3, here today in its first game of the 2019 Sled Series in Indian Trail, North Carolina.
“I thought we played real well at times, but it wasn’t enough and credit to Canada for capitalizing on their chances,” said David Hoff, head coach of the 2018-19 U.S. National Sled Hockey Team. “It was one of those back-and-forth games that could’ve gone either way and unfortunately we ended up on the losing end. We’ll regroup tonight and turn our attention towards a real strong finish tomorrow.”
