Zane Gothberg (University of North Dakota)

North Dakota was off this week. They'll play Minnesota in the Frozen Four on Thursday. Gothberg's a big reason they're there and will have to be on his game if they're going to win.

Europe

Linus Arnesson (Djurgardens)

Djurgardens aka Animal Gardens aka Mesta Mästarna, Stockholms Stolthet, lost to Örebro 2-4, defeated Malmö 4-3 and also Västerås 6-2. Djurgardens finished the Kval till SHL at 5-1-4 and in second place (on a goal difference) to gain promotion to the SHL. Though Djurgardens did not win their league this year, this has to be deemed by fans as a superior achievement. Having played in the second tier of Swedish hockey, they'll be among the country's best teams in the top flight. Relegation and promotion is a fantastic concept in sports and it's unfortunate we don't have that in America. Shifting back to the Bruins, Linus Arnesson didn't play in any of this week's games and he also missed the last game the previous week. I'm inclined to speculate that's due to injury because he's been on the top two pairings all season. It would be odd to drop him at the most crucial point of the year. Unfortunately I couldn't find any clarity on the matter. What's also a little foggy is Arnesson's future. I fully expected him to come over to the AHL following this year because he'd outgrown second tier Swedish hockey. With a spot in the SHL secured, he might want to stay. And I think I'd be okay with that. The Bruins wouldn't have him taking up a roster spot and he'd be able to develop further in Sweden where he'll be able to enjoy the fruits of his hard work.

If you don't speak Swedish, here's a rough translation. (hint: he's excited)

And go check out the post game. Pandemonium.
