Team USA opened the World Championships with an easy victory over Austria. Jack Johnson — wearing the No. 3 he sported at the University of Michigan — had one of Team USA’s 47 shots on goal. Johnson had no goals, assists or penalties and it’s not possible to tell, from the box score, how many minutes he played. USA plays Belarus on Sunday. Michael Cammalleri and Team Canada play tomorrow.
As a reminder, Manchester will try to end its first-round AHL series against Worcester tonight. The Monarchs lead the series 3-1 and play at home tonight.
