U.S. opens 2-0 lead on Germans in first
Charlie Coyle scored a power-play goal and Jerry D'Amigo notched his first of the tournament when the U.S. National Junior Team opened a 2-0 first-period lead over Germany in preliminary-round action in Group A of the World Junior Championship at HSBC Arena.

Coyle took a pass from Jon Merrill along the left-wing half boards and skated toward the left post before lofting a shot that beat German goalie Niklas Treutle under his arm at the 12:37 mark. D'Amigo's unassisted tally came 48 seconds later at 13:25.

U.S. goalie Jack Campbell needed to make just two saves while Treutle was kept busy with 21 stops. U.S. forward Jeremy Morin, who missed the previous game due to injury, had a team-leading four shots on net.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
