Norway Looks To End 30 Year Goal Drought Against Canada

This is Stephen Foyn, a Swedish born Norwegian hockey legend. In addition to starring with club team Sparta, Foyn played with Norway at the 1980, 1984 and 1988 Olympics as well as 3 World Championships.

Foyn scored 6 goals in 16 games at the various Olympics. Norway was never much of a hockey power, so it makes Foyn's goal against Canada in 1984 a real highlight. It was Norway's only goal in an 8-1 loss.

In fact, it was the last goal scored by Norway against Canada in the Olympics. In 30 years since, they have yet to score again.

Norway will try again on February 13th, 2014 in Sochi.
