According to the Hockey Canada website, Griffin Reinhart, son of former Calgary Flames defenseman Paul Reinhart, led Canada in scoring on Thursday in quarterfinal action of the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championship in Malmo, Sweden.

Reinhart, a defenseman himself, recorded a goal and an assist as Team Canada beat Team Switzerland 4-1. With the win, Canada will now advance to the semi-finals on Saturday against Finland.

Reinhart scored his first goal of the tournament. The goal opened the scoring from Scott Laughton. Reinhart then set up his Edmonton Oil Kings' teammate Curtis Lazar in the third period.

A major story on Thursday is that the defending champion, the United States are eliminated. The American team lost 5-3 to Russia.

Griffin Reinhart's father Paul played for the Flames from 1979-1988. He actually played in Atlanta for their final season as the Flames before joining Calgary when the team relocated the following National Hockey League season.
