Days after the five Cornellians of Canada’s women’s hockey team earned silver medals in Pyeongchang, goaltender Ben Scrivens ’10 won bronze as Canada men’s hockey beat the Czech Republic, 6-4, in the Bronze medal game.
Scrivens’ Olympic competition ended in his team’s 1-0 win over Finland Feb. 21, when he left the game with an upper body injury. Kevin Poulin took over in net for the team’s semifinal loss to Germany and the win over the Czech Republic.
In a Feb. 16 preliminary round contest, Scrivens made 18 saves on 20 shots, but Canada fell to the Czech Republic, 3-2, in a shootout. He made 28 saves and allowed just one goal in a 5-1 win over Switzerland Feb. 15.
Scrivens’ 2,873 career saves are second-most in Cornell program history. His NHL career included stints in Toronto, Los Angeles, Edmonton and Montreal.
