The RCAF Flyers stepped in at the last minute and offered to send a team to St. Moritz, Switzerland even though Canada had not considered sending a squad. The outcome was memorable as the Flyers went undefeated with a record of 7-0-1. Goalkeeper Murray Dowey stole the spotlight by recording five shutouts. The Canadians needed a win against the Swiss on the final day to capture the gold. They responded with a solid 3-0 victory despite being pelted during the game by debris thrown by the partisan fans.
