NEWS CENTER - South Portland native Jon Gillies stopped all seven shots he faced in his debut for the United States as the Americans shutout Germany 8-0, in their opener to the Under-20 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. 

The freshman netminder for Providence College played the entire third period in relief of starting goaltender John Gibson, who made 19 stops in the first two periods. 

The US will face hosts Russia on Friday.
