Brian Strait and Team USA got off to a good start Wednesday at the IIHF 2008 World Junior Championship in the Czech Republic. Team USA beat Kazakhstan, 5-1, in the opening contest.

Kyle Okposo, Colin Wilson, James vanRiemsdyk, Rhett Rakhshani and Mike Carman all scored for Team USA.

Strait, a 2006 Penguins draft choice, played for Team USA, but did not record a point. However, the Boston University defenseman was named Team USA’s captain.

Team USA takes on Switzerland on Friday.
