from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

Detroit Red Wings forward Lucas Raymond was wanting to play for Sweden at the August IIHF World Junior Championship. Swedish coach Tomas Monten was wanting to include Raymond as part of his squad.

According to Monten, it was the Red Wings who were ultimately making the decision to keep Raymond from participating in the event. The New Jersey Devils are also declining to make forward Alexander Holtz available.

“I have had an ongoing dialogue with them but unfortunately Lucas and Alex will not play,” Monten told Swedish wesbite Expressen.se. “Detroit and New Jersey think the tournament is wrong in time to be optimal in their recharge.”

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.
