I dont think he's on Roger Rönnbergs radar. Wouldnt mind if they took a closer look at him at the pre-camp in Uppsala. Same with John Persson, perhaps even Nick Sörensen?

There's still hope we could get Zibanejad. Åberg-Zibanejad-Rakell would be an awesome second line.

No surprises really. We could end up with a pretty young team if you consider that Rakell and Rask also have a good chance make the team. That would mean 10 players born 1993 and 1994 on the roster.

It'll probably be a young team, but I wonder if either of the two 1994-born players will make the final cut (Filip Forsberg and Collberg)... neither of them currently plays an important role on their respective senior team, and as you mentioned Rakell and Rask are making strong cases to be included. Rensfeldt is another forward who also has a chance.

John Persson also seems to be playing quite well at the moment.

Michael Schumacher is now in tied fourth place for goals in OHL, and over 1 ppg. If he continues like this he deserves a invite to the camp.

That's good, we could really use some size at forward.

Nice to hear, was one of my favourite players with the junior team last year. Would be awesome to get to see him play on small ice with the national team.

Johan Mattsson should be in the mix for a goalie spot. He is one of the top-goalies in OHL. It's nice to have a goalie that used to small ice too. There is a unusual amount of players in CHL this year that could make the team. However players playing in Sweden is usually favoured a bit.

Rask and Rakell will probably get a spot. We lack good leftwingers so Rensfeldt also have a good chance, he is a big body and shows right now putting up points with Yakupov that he can be a good complimentary player.

Those four should have a good chance, don't think Schumacher and Persson will make it, they are not really on the radar enough. Persson have very limited National team experience and Schumacher none. They would have to go on a serious scoring spree now to even be invited to the camp.

Goalkeepers:
Johan Gustafsson
Johan Mattsson
Niklas Lundström
(surprise but they like having a one year younger goalie that might be the starter next year and Lundström has been really good in Superelit)

The D will most likely be:
Johan Alm
Mattias Bäckman
Oscar Klefbom
Fredrik Claesson
John Klingberg
Patrik Nemeth
Jonas Brodin


There might be some surprise like for example Luleås Daniel Gunnarsson. I mean Gunnarsson is really big, plays a twoway-game and is getting some good icetime now in SEL.

The Forwards might look like this:

Åberg-Rask-Zibanejad
(with so many good centers, Zibanejad could be used on the wing, Zibanejad and Åberg have chemistry, Zibanejad and Rask have chemistry. Perhaps the whole line will click)
Sundström-Larsson-Rakell
(Looks like a good line to me, Friberg gets demoted since he hasn't played that great so far this season)
Rensfeldt-Karlsson-Friberg
(Could be a productive line, William Karlsson is the motor here)
Boyce-Nordström-Forsberg
(checking line)
Westerholm
(talanted spare forward, that could take a spot on a scoring line if one of them isn't working)

Agree on the goalies and the defense, however I think they will bring 8 dmans just like last year. Petter Granberg could grab that 8th spot, he will only play if there is injuries tho. As for the NA-guys I think Rakell, Rask and Rensfeldt will make the team. Schumi is a 93:born so he should have a shot next year. Tbh I dont know much about J.Persson, the only thing I know is that he brings size and is used to the NA-rinks. But, yeah RR will as usual favour players in Sweden, so his chanes are very slim.

2 players I think have a big chance is Joachim Nermark and Erik Thorell. Im not the biggest fan of either of them, sure Nermark could be a solid 2-way forward on the 3rd or 4th line. Thorell is small but speedy and he was invited to the camp already last year. RR seem high on him, dunno why?

Petter Granberg has been called in for the J20 squad that goes to the 4-nation tourney in Vaasa, Finland. I dont know if he's an addition or if he is replacing someone.

I also hope Roger Rönnberg won't rely on injured players like he did last time vs Russia when Nemeth was on the ice for all goals against, poor coaching. It was such a painfull loss, dominating the Russians but still loosing. :-(

Don't count on it, it would be a huge surprise. Both of them already key players on their NHL teams.

You could have:

Rask-Zibanejad-Åberg aswell.

In u-18 wjc, Zibanejad was used on the rightwing with Rask being the center. Zibanejad can be a bit too defensiveminded as a center, and is freed up for being a more creative player as a winger. Åberg can play either wing. I don't know how Rask is a winger.

In the NHL-games I watched with Zibanejad (quite a few actually) I got to admit he did look better as a center, allthough he was not good at faceoffs at that level.

Johan Larsson, William Karlsson, Joakim Nordström seems like a very strong group of centers to me, so we have to have some center playing winger. Johan Larsson works excellent on the wing, but he is our best faceoff guy.

Three Minnesota prospects; Gustafsson, Brodin and Larsson.

Minnesota is doing well.

How was Gustafsson progressed because I am interested in the mini-Monster.

Two players are supposed to be added to the roster that was posted earlier. With Granberg and Zibanejad the team has eight defencemen and 13 forwards.

Currently eighth in Elitserien in GAA with 2.11, ninth in SV% with .915 and tied for second with three shutouts (tied with Fasth, trailing Andersen).

Sure, just hope the Avs could give their hero a few days off to have some fun and see the boys. Perhaps if Mueller comes back at left wing.

Larsson...maybe Lou thinks it would give him the opportunity to pick up some points. Those Larsson to Kovalchuk feeds don't happen to often, right now.

You sure Klingberg's going to play at the U-20 tournament in Wasa? Even though his performances might also matter, he's been listed injured (upper body injury) by Jokerit recently.

Any chance Michael Schumacher will overtake someone for a spot on the WJC team? Sorry, it needed to said.
