Para ice hockey returns as Canada takes on South Korea


BEIJING – Canadian medal hopes on Day 4 at the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games will zoom in on the Para nordic skiers in the middle-distance biathlon races. Action on Tuesday at the Games will also see Canada’s Para ice hockey team look for its first win of the tournament and the first-place wheelchair curlers play two more games.  

Para Nordic Skiing – Biathlon 
Para biathlon returns to the trails with the middle-distance events. Mark Arendz and Brittany Hudak, both already bronze medallists in Beijing, hunt for their second podiums of the Games in the men’s and women’s standing categories which start at 12 p.m. local / 11 p.m. ET Monday. Joining Hudak in the women’s race is teammate Emily Young. Also in action for Canada is Christina Picton in the women’s sitting and Derek Zaplotinsky in the men’s sitting, kicking off the day’s competition at 10 a.m. local / 9 p.m. ET Monday. 

Para Ice Hockey
Canada looks to get a notch on the win column as it faces South Korea at 1:05 p.m. local / 12:05 a.m. ET. The Canadians lost their opening match 5-0 to the USA and following a couple days off would like to head into the playoffs on a winning note. Four years ago, Canada won the silver in PyeongChang while South Korea was the bronze medallist. 

Wheelchair Curling 
First place Canada (4-1) won’t need to linger on its first loss of the tournament Monday night. Two more games are scheduled for Tuesday as round-robin play continues: versus South Korea (1-3) at 9:35 a.m. local / 8:35 p.m. ET Monday, followed by Slovakia (2-2) at 7:35 p.m. local / 6:35 a.m. ET.
