A pair of Detroit Red Wings, and someone who would like to re-sign with the team next season, are flourishing at the World Championship in Finland as pool play nears completion.
Center Pius Suter has seven points (two goals, five assists) for surprising Switzerland, the only unscathed team in the tournament (6-0-0-0, W-OTW-OTL-L; 18 points). Suter is tied for third on his team and tied for fifth among all players in points.
Suter will face Red Wings teammate Moritz Seider on Tuesday when Switzerland faces Germany (5-0-0-1, 15 points) in a battle between the top teams in Group A, which concludes pool play.
Seider, coming off an outstanding rookie season that earned him a Calder Trophy nomination, has a goal and five points in six games, leading German defensemen in scoring.

Not so long ago, the billing was displaying Filip Larsson as the goaltender of the future for the Detroit Red Wings. Today, he is a goaltender facing an uncertain future.
The final year of the three-year entry-level deal he signed with the Wings done, Larsson was recently given his release by HV71. He was among 11 players dropped from the squad that earned promotion to the Swedish Hockey League from Hockey Allsvenskan, the Swedish second division.
