Kevin Koe and his Calgary-based rink look to bounce back from a 5-2 loss to Sweden, their first of the tournament. With four draws remaining in the preliminary round, Canada's 4-1 record puts it in second place going into their draw against third-place Switzerland (3-2).

When slopestyle skiing made its Olympic debut in Sochi, Alex Beaulieu-Marchand was Canada's sole representative. Four years later the 23-year-old medal contender leads a team of four, including Alex Bellemare, Teal Harle and Evan McEachran, as qualification begins at 8 p.m. ET, followed by the final at 11:15 p.m. ET.

Women's curling, Canada vs. Switzerland, 12 a.m. to 3 a.m. ET on Sunday
Rachael Homan is on the comeback trail. Following a disastrous 0-3 start, Canada got a much-needed victory against the U.S. on Day 8. Homan will look to make it two straight wins as Canada seeks to keep its playoff hopes alive against Switzerland.

Bobsleigh Two-Man, Justin Kripps, Christopher Spring, 6 a.m. to 8:40 a.m ET on Sunday
The bobsleigh competition begins with the first two heats in the two-man event.

Christopher Spring and Lascelles Brown are the second team with the Nick Poloniato and Jesse Lumsden comprising the third.

Men's aerials final, Olivier Rochon, 6 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. ET on Sunday
Canada's Olivier Rochon is heading into the men's aerials event on a high, having secured a career-best score as well as a podium finish in a World Cup event in January. Rochon takes on a 12-man field, including favourite Jonathon Lillis of the United States, in the final.

Men's hockey, Canada vs. Korea, 7:10 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. ET on Sunday
After suffering a shootout loss to the Czech Repbulic, Canada (1-1) needs a win over South Korea as well as some favourable results elsewhere if it's to secure a bye into the quarter-finals. Anything short of a win and Canada will have play in the qualification round.
