IIHF WJC Team Sweden Update: Adam Ollas-Mattsson Out With Injury

Ollas-Mattsson will not return to the international tournament with a lower-body injury.

Well, I'm quite disappointed, not only in the loss of a medal for Team Canada, but now this.

After reading this on twitter, I was even more disappointed than I already was. With Sweden having a good chance at earning a gold medal this year, the chances are shrinking with the absence of William Nylander and Adam Ollas-Mattsson.

Here's a little more information on the injuries from SportsNet.ca...

Sweden's Nylander out for rest of world juniors

Adam Ollas-Mattsson notched a lone point during the tournament in the form of an assist during the December 30th game against Denmark in a 5-0 shutout.

As much as I won't be as invested as I could have been, I'll still be watching Team Sweden play in spite of the injury to the Flames prospect because that's what us Canadians do - we watch a lot of hockey. For the sake of the Flames prospect, I hope Team Sweden can make a comeback in the absence of Ollas-Mattsson and Nylander to get the gold.
