SOCHI, Russia – Former North Dakota All-American Jonathan Toews will play for his second straight Olympic gold medal.

Toews and Canada, who claimed gold in 2010 in Vancouver, defeated the United States 1-0 today in the semifinals to advance to Sunday’s gold medal game against Sweden.

Toews won 10 of 16 faceoffs and led all players in faceoff wins. The Canadian assistant captain also registered one shot on goal and logged 15:45 of ice time.

In 2010, Toews was named the Top Forward at the Olympics and earned all-tournament honors after tying for the tournament lead in assists and plus/minus. He’ll now get a chance to become the first 2-time Olympic gold medalist in North Dakota men’s hockey history.

UND’s other previous gold medal winners include Canadian goalie Ed Belfour (2002) and American forward Dave Christian (1980).

UND’s two other former All-Americans competing in Sochi, Zach Parise and T.J. Oshie, will face Finland in the bronze medal game. Parise led all players today with eight shots on goal and paced all American forwards in ice time (21:03). Oshie had one shot on goal but played a central role in a U.S. penalty killing effort that killed both Canadian power plays.

The bronze medal game is scheduled for Saturday at 9 a.m. Central. The game can be seen live on NBC Sports Network and can be heard on Sirius/XM Channel 92.

Canada and Sweden will face off for gold on Sunday at 6 a.m. Central. The game can be seen live on NBC and CBC.
