Sweden’s Junior Team Will Have Three Detroit Prospects

from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

The Detroit Red Wings will be well represented on the Swedish roster for this summer’s IIHF World Junior Championship. Three Detroit draft picks are among the Swedish squad that was officially unveiled on Tuesday.

Expectations were that defenseman Simon Edvinsson and center/right wing Theodor Niederbach were going to be part of the lineup. Both were also with the Swedes in the winter. Organizers ended up halting play mid-tournament due to an outbreak of COVID-19.

However, defenseman William Wallinder wasn’t part of that club. He will be the second time around, though. The Rogle defenseman and Red Wings draftee was included when the new edition of the team was announced.

I was wondering why the WJC was being in the summer.  I’d forgotten the covid at the tournament.

Reading that Wallinder “has taken great strides
defensively” in the view of those putting the team together is about as good an
update as one can get after a season in which he really began playing a
prominent, big minutes role, including putting up some points. Not too long ago people were still talking about Wallinder as a project.
