Zach Fucale to start in goal for Canada vs. Slovakia in semifinals

By The Canadian Press

TORONTO – Zach Fucale will start in goal for Canada in the world junior semifinals against Slovakia.

Fucale made 14 saves to shut out Denmark in the quarter-finals but was barely tested.

In three starts this tournament, the 19-year-old Fucale has allowed just one goal and his save percentage is .982.

If Canada beats Slovakia, the gold-medal game is Monday.

It’s uncertain if the back-to-back has anything to do with coach Benoit Groulx’s decision.

Eric Comrie has started Canada’s other two games, allowing a total of three goals against Germany and the United States.

Comrie’s save percentage in the tournament is .933.
