Sweden's Junior Team Will Have Three Detroit Prospects

06/21/2022 at 12:48pm EDT

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.

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.
