Winnipeg, December 31, 2023 - In a gripping showdown on the ice, Jordan Dumais emerged as the hero for Team Canada as they clinched a thrilling 6-3 victory over Germany in the final game of the preliminary round of the international ice hockey tournament. Dumais' late-game heroics, including a jaw-dropping fifth goal, not only secured the win but also propelled Canada to a second-place finish in the preliminary round.

The game, which had remained tied at 3-3 midway through the third period, was ignited by Dumais' exceptional performance. With Canada on a power play, Dumais seized the opportunity and broke the deadlock with a well-placed shot that found the back of the net, leaving German goaltender Matthias Bittner with no chance. This pivotal power-play goal sent the Canadian fans into a frenzy and put their team ahead 4-3.

Displaying extraordinary speed and determination, Dumais chased down a long pass and outmaneuvered Bittner to reach the puck. Then, from a seemingly impossible angle, he fired a quick shot into the empty net, leaving spectators in awe of his skill and precision. The goal marked Dumais' second of the night and showcased his ability to rise to the occasion in high-stakes situations.

Dumais not only dazzled with his goal-scoring prowess but also played a crucial role in drawing a penalty that led to his earlier power-play goal. His incredible individual effort and his clutch performances throughout the game were instrumental in Canada's victory.

With this win, Canada secures the second spot in the preliminary round, setting the stage for an exciting playoff run. Meanwhile, Germany's playoff hopes were dashed, and they will face Norway in a one-game relegation match on January 4th, where their tournament fate hangs in the balance.

Jordan Dumais' unforgettable performance in the final preliminary game will undoubtedly be the topic of discussion as Canadians ring in the New Year.
