Jonatan Berggren Won't Play In The World Championship

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.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
