Center Logan Brown is making his long-awaited return to the lineup Thursday as the United States faces Sweden in semifinal action at the world juniors.

Brown missed the team's last three games after being sidelined with a lower-body injury. He's recorded one assist in two tournament games.

Brown has recorded 24 points in 15 games with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League this season.

The Ottawa Senators selected Brown with the 11th pick in 2016.
