Axel Andersson, Victor Berglund named to U20 Sweden Team for Four Nations Tournament

The 2018 2nd Round Pick and 2017 7th Round Pick will be facing the best of Europe’s finest hockey nations.

MODO Hockey

Today, the swedish roster for the U-20 Four Nations Tournament, a tournament between Russia, Sweden, Finland, and the Czech Republic, was formally announced by The Svenska Ishockeyförbundet (Or the Swedish Ice Hockey Association), and a pair of Boston Bruins prospects will be manning the Blueline for Tre Kronor!

Thanks to our friend Patrik Bexell for this info!:

For Berglund, this will be a shocking level of hometown advantage, as his hometown is listed as the town of Örnsköldsvik, his own team, the U20 and mainline MODO squad, is based in Örnsköldsvik, and that is where the tourney is held.

The tournament is listed to start on the 24th of August, then finish near the end of the month. The Swedish roster is the only one listed, so there’s a good chance other Bruins prospects might make it to this tournament. We’ll keep you posted.

Until then, we formally wish good luck to both!
