U.S. Junior Select Team Defeats Canada East, 6-1 at 2010 World Junior A Challenge

Mullin Scores Three Goals in Tournament Opener

PENTICTON, B.C. - Jimmy Mullin (Cincinnati, Ohio) scored three goals and goalie Zane Gothberg (Thief River Falls, Minn.) stopped three breakaway opportunities as the U.S. Junior Select Team earned a 6-1 win over Canada East in its opening game of the 2010 World Junior A Challenge.

Garrett Allen (Delafield, Wis.), Ryan Dzingel (Wheaton, Ill.) and Colten St. Clair (Gilbert, Ariz.) each logged two assists in the victory.

"We ran into some penalty trouble early, but started to find our game in the second and third periods," said P.K. O'Handley, head coach of the U.S. Junior Select Team. "We've been working hard to develop chemistry, and we hope to bring this energy throughout the rest of the tournament."

Team USA opened the scoring just over one minute into the second period. Jimmy Mullin (Cincinnati, Ohio) drove to the front of the net from the near boards and jammed the puck over the goal line to give the U.S. a 1-0 lead.

Following a Canada East power-play goal, Team USA grabbed 3-1 advantage with a pair of tallies just 52 seconds apart. Mullin redirected a Tommy Fallen (Plymouth, Minn.) wrist shot from the point past Canada East goalie Jordan Ruby at the 13:57 mark of the second. Then, Max McCormick (De Pere, Wis.) extended the U.S. lead to two with a hard wrist shot from the high slot.

Caleb Herbert (Bloomington, Minn.) scored a rebound goal with less than two minutes left in the middle frame to give Team USA a 4-1 edge heading into the final period.

After Brian Cooper (Anchorage, Alaska) made the score 5-1 with a long shot from the point five minutes into the third, Mullin notched his third of the game midway through the frame to close out the scoring.

Gothberg made 23 saves in the victory, while Ruby turned aside 31 shots in a losing effort.

The U.S. Junior Select Team will play its second preliminary-round game of the tournament Wednesday (Nov. 10) at 7 p.m. EST against Sweden. A full schedule can be found below.
