Lucas Raymond Not On Sweden's Under-20 Roster

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey New,

Detroit Red Wings prospect Lucas Raymond wasn’t left off Sweden’s summer U-20 roster because he was coming off surgery. He didn’t get a spot because the Swedes believe he could be in the NHL.

“Both Raymond and (New Jersey Devils prospect) Alexander Holtz have already played two WJC and are going to NHL training camps in the fall,” said a source familiar with the Swedish team. “We don’t know if they will be available for the WJC in Red Deer in December, so we don’t bring them along on this camp.”

The Red Wings will still have two prospects – defenseman William Wallinder and right wing Theodor Niederbach – playing for Sweden at the World Junior Summer Showcase from July 18-August 2 at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.

About Abel to Yzerman

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.
