Grzelcyk, Burakovsky score early in scrimmage

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- After one period in the first exhibition game at the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation camp, USA White and Sweden are tied 1-1.

USA White's Matthew Grzelcyk, a Boston Bruins prospect, opened the scoring 3:28 into the game with a power-play goal set up by Michael Brodzinski.

Just more than two minutes later, a penalty on USA White let Sweden tie the game on a power-play goal by Andre Burakovsky, the Washington Capitals' first pick at the 2013 NHL Draft.

USA White goalie Jon Gillies and the team's penalty killers did yeoman's work to keep the game tied in the second half of the period as the Americans were whistled for three minor penalties in a 4:55 span, two of them on forward J.T. Compher.

Here are the rosters each team is using for the game today:

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
