The teenage defenseman Rasmus Dahlin will make Sweden games interesting to watch for all NHL fans. The kid is the next great European defenseman.

The team's general manager Johan Garpenlov (remember him?) made some controversial decisions. The most glaring omission seems to be Vancouver prospect Elias Petterson. Petterson is said to be having the most legendary under-20 season in Sweden since some guy named Peter Forsberg.

22 year old Victor Olofsson is the leading goal scorer in the Swedish Elite League so far this season but is not going to Pyeongchang, either.
