Barrie scores for Canada

Kelowna Rockets captain Tyson Barrie scored a power play goal in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Czechs.

Tyson Barrie scored a power play goal in the third period Tuesday to help Canada past the Czech Republic 7-2 at the IIHF World Junior Championship in Buffalo.

The Kelowna Rockets’ captain tallied his first marker of the tournament with the Canadians enjoying a 5-on-3 power play to make it a 6-1 game.

Barrie went into the world junior tournament as the seventh defenceman on the depth chart, but logged plenty of ice time against the Czechs to move up in the pecking order.

Canada, now 2-0, will battle Norway Wednesday night in Buffalo.

Barrie and the Canadians will wrap up the round robin on New Year’s eve against Sweden.
