Video: 2012 World Junior Championship – Mika Zibanejad, Sweden

By Ken McKenna

The Group A preliminary round matchup that most were expecting would carry great weight will indeed come to pass as Sweden and Russia will faceoff on New Year’s Eve for bragging rights in this grouping.  Sweden cemented their position with a 9-1 win over Slovakia, with one of the team’s stars being forward Mika Zibanejad.  Zibanejad, a Ottawa Senators prospect, turned in his best performance of the WJC so far and, like the rest of the Swedish squad, seems to be round his game into shape at the right time.

Zibanejad took some questions from the media following the win over Slovakia.
