Gunnarsson Going to the Worlds

TORONTO, ON - APRIL 3: Dennis Wideman #6 of the Boston Bruins ties up Carl Gunnarsson #36 of the Toronto Maple Leafs in a game on April 3, 2010 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. (Photo by Claus Andersen/Getty Images)

I suppose it won't come as a shock to anyone that Carl Gunnarsson has been named to the Swedish team at the World Championships in Slovakia, but it's still good to hear it. The goaltending will be supplied by two Swedish Elite League goalies and Erik Ersberg from the KHL - no mention of Gustavsson, though again, not a shocker. All this, courtesy of Sleza, the wonderful Finn, who I presume translated this from Swedish.
