from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,
Last year, Detroit Red Wings prospect Jonatan Berggren was feeling the devastation when he was among the last cuts from Sweden’s roster for the IIHF World Championship tournament.
This year, the cut was even unkinder. Sweden is making the decision of dropping Berggren from the country’s roster after his testing positive for COVID-19.
“Jonatan Berggren has tested positive for COVID-19 and must be quarantined for five days,” Swedish coach and former Red Wings forward Johan Garpenlov told Aftonbladet.se. “After that, he must show two negative tests to get to the World Cup.”
Garpenlov simply felt the downtime Berggren was facing would be too much to overcome in order for him to be able to contribute to the Swedish cause.
