With the 2022 Men’s Ice Hockey Olympics beginning in February 2022, we predict Team Sweden’s Ice Hockey Olympic Roster.
Heading into the 2022 Men’s Ice Hockey Olympics in Beijing, Team Sweden, much like other teams, heads into the tournament absent some key figures from past international competitions. The Sedin twins and Henrik Zetterberg have retired, and their main man in net, Henrik Lundqvist, is coming off heart surgery earlier in the year.
Even with those losses, Sweden still should be considered a favorite to medal in the elite international competition.
One of the main things to like with this forward group is the blend of playmaking and finishing abilities each line possesses. The first line is a perfect example of that blend, with Landeskog, Eriksson Ek, and Nylander all providing strengths that their linemates might not have.
On the cusp: Rickard Rakell (ANA), Victor Olofsson (BUF), Lucas Raymond (DET)
