Sens prospects score five on World Juniors opening day

Two of the Ottawa Senators' best offensive prospects combined to score five goals in opening day action at the 2012 World Junior Championships in Edmonton, Alberta on Monday.

Winger Mark Stone scored a hat trick for Canada in their 8-1 win over Team Finland, which earned him player of the game honours for Canada. He finished the night with five shots on net and a plus-3 rating.

In a later game, 2011 first-round draft choice Mika Zibanejad scored two goals of his own as his Swedish squad beat Latvia by a 9-4 score. Both of Zibanejad's goals were powerplay markers, and the centre-turned-winger finished with a minus-1 rating.

Fredrik Claessen was also representing Sweden in that later game, but finished the game with no points, no shots, and a plus-1 rating.

The fourth and final Senators prospect in the tournament is Jakub Culek, whose Czech Republic squad begins play Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST.

Canada and Sweden will each play their second games of the tournament on Wednesday, with the Swedes taking on the Swiss just before Canada plays the Czechs.
