Khan: seven Red Wings prospects on preliminary World Junior Championship rosters

Per TSN and MLive’s Ansar Khan, the World Junior Championship-participating teams named their rosters (albeit extended rosters in some cases), and seven Red Wings are on the preliminary lists:

Sweden: Lucas Raymond, Theodor Niederbach, Elmer Soderblom (currently sidelined with a foot injury), Albert Johansson, Gustav Berglund;

Finland: Eemil Viro;

Czech Republic: Jan Bednar.

It should be noted, per the IIHF’s website, the Czech Roster is still an “extended roster.” The Swedes made their final cuts on Saturday, however, so all five Wings made their 25-man roster.
