EDMONTON - Jason Zucker scored a goal and had two assists as the United States dominated Denmark 11-3 to open the world junior men's hockey championship Monday.

Zucker scored the American's 2nd goal after receiving the puck at the red line, he overran Danish defenceman Mark Larsen.
With a 3-2 lead going into the second period, the U.S. scored six goals to put the game out of reach.

The majority of the 13,501 at Rexall Place climbed aboard the Danish bandwagon to unite in hostility against a U.S. squad that is seen as Team Canada's biggest obstacle in Pool B.

This tournament is my favorite - of all hockey tournaments, Olympics and Stanley Cup included. It's really special. It's like watching an NCAA All Star Game. Guys who are battling side by side, in another month will be back on opposing teams going for each others throats on into the post season. Yet today, this week, they're blood brothers and would die for one another. I love it.

I don't expect the team Denmark Equipment Manager to be around too long..... he mistakingly ordered the jerseys to read "DANMARK". I think he had a little too much Carlsberg or Akvavit they day he placed the order........

It is the Danish spelling. A small amount of searching would have stopped you from looking like a fool.
