South Korean President Moon Jae-in was among the dignitaries taking in the first game for the historic joint team.
Moon was joined by Kim Yo Jong, sister of the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and Kim Yong Nam, the North’s nominal head of state.
South Korean forward Han Soo-jin hit the crossbar midway through the opening frame, and that was as close as it came to scoring.
Of the 22, at least three must be North Koreans, and head coach Sarah Murray used forwards Jong Su-hyon and Kim Un-hyang and defender Hwang Chung-gum for the occasion.
Jong led all North Koreans with 20:58 of ice time, while Kim played a little over seven minutes and Hwang played 7:49.
