Matheson: No World Junior Selection camp for the Swedes ahead of the WJC

Given that Hockey Canada’s already holding its World Junior Selection Camp, which has been beset by a couple of positive coronavirus cases, this news about the Swedish World Junior selection process ahead of this year’s World Junior Championship in Edmonton is a bit surprising:

Russia is having world junior selection camp Nov. 29 in Moscow. Swedes picking their team from players already playing in SHL and Allsvenskan. No camp.— Jim Matheson (@jimmathesonnhl) November 24, 2020

The World Junior Championship will begin in Edmonton on December 25th, and Lucas Raymond, William Wallinder, Theodor Niederbach and Elmer Soderblom are among the possible Wings prospects who may play for Sweden at the WJC.
