Day One Recap:
Game One: Finland One 10, Japan 3

Finland and Japan kicked off the tournament with an all-international matchup, with the Finns skating to a 10-3 win. Okku Untala scored a game-high five points (1g/4a) as the Finns broke open a 1-0 game with four second-period goals. Verneri Viitala (3g) and Okku Untala (3a) did their best John Tavares-Thomas Vanek impersonation, as Untala fed Viitala for all three goals in his hat trick. Niko Kalliolepi also had a strong game for Finland, scoring four goals. Kenata Sesoya led the Japanese team with a goal and an assist.

Game Two: China (Qiqihar) 8, Rinx 3
Team China (Qiqihar) defeated Team RINX 8-3 in the teams’ opening-round matchup. China scored the game’s first five goals before Ethan Halle put RINX on the scoresheet late in the second period. Zhao Haiying and Zhou Xinyu led the way for China, each scoring two goals. With the victory, China heads to round two to face Finland 1

Game Three: China (Harbin) 4, Nassau 3

Islanders assistant coach Doug Weight's son, Danny, scored a goal and two assists, but the Nassau Islanders fell 4-3 to Team China (Harbin) in the third game of the afternoon. Nassau had a 2-0 lead in the second period, but China scored four unanswered goals – including a natural hat trick from Wang Jing – to take a 4-2 lead. Nassau made a late push and scored with 24 seconds to play, but the one-goal deficit was as close as they came.

Game Four: Finland Two 13, Westchester 0

Team Finland’s 13-goal effort was the high-water mark in Wednesday’s action, as they shutout the local team from Westchester. Mikhail Lahti led the way with a game-high four goals, while Jesse Kalliuina posted a hat trick and Markus Kerhula had three assists. The game was 1-0 after the first period, but Finland progressed as the game wore on, scoring eight goals in the third period.
