TORONTO — Zach Fucale will have a shot at redemption when he starts in Sundays semifinal game against Slovakia at the world junior hockey championship. Kerry Wynn Jersey .Fucale was the starter a year ago when Canada lost 5-1 in the semifinals against Finland.Last year, we learned a lot from it, Fucale said Saturday. We thought we were there and we werent. It hit us hard and it was a hard thing to go through. It helped us out. A lot of us have lived that.The 19-year-old was 2-2 with a 2.42 goals-against average and .902 save percentage at last years tournament as Canada settled for a fourth-place finish.That experience has helped the Montreal Canadiens second-round pick stay focused this year.We know that if we dont take care of this moment right now, if we dont take advantage of what we have in front of us, live in the moment, we wont have that chance at the end, he said. Its not that hard to just stay right here and take one step at a time and not skip a step.According to Canadian coach Benoit Groulx, the experience from last years tournament gave Fucale the edge for Sundays start.We like both of our goalies. They have been very good so far. It is just a matter of picking a very good goalie for tomorrow and Zach has the experience from last year, said Groulx. So we feel very comfortable having him in net tomorrow night.Eric Comrie, a Winnipeg Jets 2013 second-round pick, has a 1.55 goals-against average and .933 save percentage in his two appearances at this years tournament.Fucale said the conversation on who will start Sunday wasnt long.It wasnt much of a conversation really, Fucale said. Me and (Comrie) were just stretching on the ice and (Groulx) came over to us and told us. It feels really good. Everyone wants to be in there and contribute.Were happy to have this opportunity tomorrow and were preparing well for it.Fucale made 12 saves to blank the Slovaks in the first game of the preliminary round on Boxing Day but expects a different team in the semis.That was the first game of the tournament, he said. Theyre going to be a different team, a better team. Certainly were a better team and weve been different. If we keep playing the way we can, and play out of our comfort zone, well have success.Fucale made 14 saves to shut out Denmark in Friday nights 8-0 quarter-final win and has allowed just one goal in the tournament while posting a .982 save percentage.The Slovaks always compete and theyre coming off a couple wins and they have some momentum right now, said Fucale. We cant underestimate them at all. Theyre in the semifinals so they certainly did something right to be there and theyre going to be ready for us.The winner between Canada and Slovakia will play either Russia or Sweden for gold on Monday night.

South Korea was defeated 1-0 by Belgium, 4-2 by Algeria and a drew 1-1 with Russia. Hong told a televised news conference that he feels "deeply sorry" for the results. "We talked about giving hopes to our people. But we eventually failed to give hopes and only gave disappointment," Hong said. "Im leaving from the post today." Hong ssaid he first thought about quitting after his teams loss to Algeria. Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey. His resignation comes as something of a surprise after South Koreas football association said last week it would retain him as the national team coach. After Hongs resignation announcement, Korea Football Association President Chung Mong-Gyu told the same news conference that his association will try to find new coach as soon as possible. Hong was captain of the South Korean team that made a dramatic run to the semifinals in 2002 when his country co-hosted the World Cup with Japan.
