Sedins, Zetterberg highlight Sweden’s ’14 Olympic camp roster

Seemingly undeterred by the lack of a formal agreement for NHL participation in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, the Swedish hockey federation has released its training camp roster.

Twelve players will return from the team that went to Vancouver in 2010: Henrik Lundqvist, Niklas Kronwall, Douglas Murray, Johnny Oduya, Henrik Tallinder, Nicklas Backstrom, Loui Eriksson, Johan Franzen, Patric Hornqvist, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin and Henrik Zetterberg.

The biggest story from the camp roster, though, might be the changing of the guard for Swedish hockey.

A number of veteran presences were left off the invite list — the most notable being Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson — and a number of younger players seemed primed to make their Olympic debuts: Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Gabriel Landeskog, Carl Hagelin, Victor Hedman and Erik Karlsson.

(Though, it should be noted, there’s no official note saying those not attending camp can’t make the Swedish Olympic roster.)

Here’s the full camp invite list, courtesy Swehockey.se:

GOALIES: Jhonas Enroth, Viktor Fasth, Robin Lehner, Henrik Lundqvist

DEFENSE: Jonas Brodin, Alexander Edler, Oliver Ekman Larsson, Jonathan Ericsson, Nicklas Grossman, Erik Gustafsson, Victor Hedman, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Erik Karlsson, Niklas Kronwall, Douglas Murray, Johnny Oduya, Henrik Tallinder

FORWARDS:, Patrik Berglund, Nicklas Bäckström, Jimmie Ericsson, Loui Eriksson, Johan Franzén, Carl Hagelin, Patric Hörnqvist, Marcus Johansson, Marcus Krüger, Gabriel Landeskog, Oscar Lindberg, Joel Lundqvist, Gustav Nyquist, Niklas Persson, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Alexander Steen, Henrik Zetterberg.

    No void of talent on the Swede roster.

      His dad Thomas was a Swedish legend in the mid-to-late 80’s along with Hakan Loob, Thomas Gradin, Patrick Sundstrom and others.

    You’ve always got to temper your expectations when looking at the international rosters because they are ALL good, but….

    That looks REALLY good.
