William Nylander is believed to be right behind him, ready to join up.
Timothy Liljegren should be ready for tomorrow's game. In very early preliminary round play, Sweden has two wins and one loss, and would be expecting to move to the medal round out of their group.
William Nylander is interested in joining the team as well, and said on Monday he would discuss it with Kyle Dubas. Sportbladet is reporting that the team sent two players home, opening up a spot for Liljegren and one more. Everyone believes that spot is for Nylander, and it should be official before Thursday's game.
