According to the 2013 Winter Universiade website on Friday, Canada captured its first gold medal of the 2013 Winter Universiade in Trentino, Italy when the Canadian women's hockey team shut out Russia 5-0 in the gold medal game.

A major reason for Canada's gold medal was because of the play by Canadian forward Jenna Smith.
Smith, a product of the University of Calgary Dinos' women's hockey team who hails from Swift Current, Saskatchewan, scored two goals and notched an assist. She scored Canada's second and fifth goals and recorded an assist on Canada's third goal.

Other Team Canada players with multi-point games were University of British Columbia Thunderbirds forward Tatiana Rafter of Winnipeg and Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks forward Laura Brooker of Fergus, Ontario. Rafter had three assists, while Brooker notched a goal and an assist. Kim Wong of Mississauga, Ontario meanwhile needed to make one save for the shutout.

Canada has now won seven medals at the 2013 Winter Universiade--one gold medal, three silver medals and three bronze medals. The event concludes Saturday.
