Montreal hasn't had a ton of Swedish players, (Dackell, Dahlin, Engqvist, Hoglund, Popovic, and of course most notably Le Petit Viking Mats Naslund) and that's a shame, but I don't think the management is actively avoiding Sweden. We picked two Swedes this summer, and I hope they add more in the near future. Someone like Elias Lindholm could fit into our roster nicely.

If all goes well, we should have a Swedish sniper in our ranks in the next two years. Collberg is looking like a good pick.
Yeah, only Mats Näslund worth mentioning of them Yeah i'm really excited for Collberg, he's been bulking up last few months as well
