While Team Sweden is short a few top names at the 2013 World Juniors, their roster still sports some top, young prospects of the hockey world. Players like Filip Forsberg, Victor Rask, and Rickard Rakell should one day be skating in the NHL, probably sooner rather than later.
For Sweden's Filip Forsberg, the 2013 World Junior Championship provides a chance to cement the idea that Sweden has arrived as a hockey power at the junior level. Forsberg was a part of his country's gold medal squad at the 2012 World Juniors, with his performance at that tournament no doubt helping to solidify his stock for the 2012 NHL Draft.
For hockey fans across the globe, the preliminary round of the 2013 IIHF WJC has been just about everything anyone had ever hoped for. There’s been no lack of tension, rivalries, intrigue and background stories that have come together to make this tournament the type that fans everywhere crave.
