Nov. 7, 2007

LEKSAND, Sweden - Junior defenseman Helen Resor (Greenwich, Conn.) picked up one assist as Team USA opened play at the Four Nations Cup with a 4-0 win over Sweden in Leksand Wednesday.

Resor had her helper on Sarah Parsons' power-play goal with eight minutes left. Karen Thatcher, Erica McKenzie and Meghan Fardelmann also scored for the U.S.

She has also participated in the last two IIHF World Championships, earning a gold medal in 2005 and a silver medal this past spring. She has a pair of silver medals from her two previous Four Nations Cup appearances.

The U.S. plays Canada Thursday at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time. Team Canada beat Finland 4-1 on Wednesday.
