Video: 2012 World Junior Championship – Filip Forsberg, Sweden

By Ken McKenna

Although he did not produce big numbers at the 2012 World Junior Championship, Sweden‘s Filip Forsberg was still an effective performer for his team.  Forsberg is a top prospect for the 2012 NHL Draft, but on this Swedish squad he was asked to fill a different role than he would normally fill when playing in his own age group.  But having a depth player as talented as Forsberg is no doubt one of the reasons that Sweden was able to cop their first gold medal in 31 year’s at this tournament.

Forsberg talked about winning the gold following Sweden’s 1-0, overtime win over Russia.
