Video: 2012 World Junior Championship – Johan Sundstrom, Sweden

By Ken McKenna

Swedish forward Johan Sundstrom has been given a good deal of responsibility by the team’s coaching staff, and it appears some of that faith in Sundstrom is paying dividends.  The New York Islanders prospect is centering Sweden‘s top unit at the 2012 WJC, and has also been named an alternate captain.  Sundstrom picked up three points in the team’s 9-1 win over Slovakia, a sign that his game is peaking at the right time as Sweden heads into its New Year’s Eve showdown against Russia.

Sundstrom spoke with HF following the win over Slovakia.
