SOCHI, Russia -- Former North Dakota All-American Jonathan Toews and the Canadian Olympic team opened defense of their gold medal today with a 3-1 victory over Norway.

Playing on a line with Rich Nash and Chicago Blackhawks teammate Patrick Sharp, Toews led all Canadian forwards in ice time (16:15) while winning 10 of his 14 faceoffs (71.4 percent). 

Toews did not register a point but hit the goal post with a deflection of a point shot in the second period.

The Winnipeg, Manitoba, native was named the top forward at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, where he helped lead Canada to a gold medal.

Toews and Team Canada return to action on Friday against Austria at 11 a.m. Central.
