Jeff Carter scored a natural hat trick, and Team Canada's blue-line continued its offensive outburst as the Olympic men's hockey squad routed Austria 6-0 Friday at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics at Bolshoy Ice Dome.

Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0.

Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout.

Canada was all over the porous Austrian defence, churning out 39 shots on goal, compared to just 23 for Austria.

Austrian goaltender Bernhard Starkbaum prevented a much more lopsided score and was solid in withstanding a barrage of shots from the potent Canadian offence, making 22 saves before exiting ahead of the third period.

Perhaps his best stop came as Anaheim Ducks sniper Corey Perry swooped in on a penalty shot but was denied by Starkbaum's glove hand.

Starkbaum would give way to backup goalie Mathias Lange for the third.

More to come.
