According to the official website of the 2013 Winter Universiade, hockey players with Calgary connections contributed to a significant Canadian victory on the opening day of the ice hockey tournament of the 2013 Winter Universiade in Trentino, Italy on Tuesday.

In women's hockey, University of Calgary forward Jenna Smith of Swift Current, Saskatchewan scored one goal and one assist, and University of McGill defenseman Brittney Fouracres of Airdrie, Alberta (a half hour north of Calgary) registered three assists as Canada trounced Spain 21-0.

Smith's goal was Canada's 21st of the contest, and came with 35 seconds left in regulation. Fouracres had six shots on goal and was a +6, while Smith had five shots on goal and was a +4.

In other action Japan trounced Great Britain 10-1 and the United States beat Russia 4-2 in a surprisingly close matchup, considering the fact that the Americans are considered one of the two powerhouses in women's hockey, while Russia does not have strong history in women's hockey compared to their male counterparts.
