This has been discussed before. Nylander was born in Canada, has lived in the U.S. and now resides in Sweden. He holds citizenship in Canada and Sweden, in both which he never spent enough time to play in IIHF competition. But since he now lives in Sweden, both his parents are Swedish, he wants to play for Sweden and he would've been eligible for Sweden starting next season he got an exemption. I don't believe he would've gotten an exemption to play for Canada, because he holds absolutely no ties there.

He could however have played for Canada in this tournament because it's not IIHF, but moot point since he's made a decision.
