Liam Dower Nilsson gets a shout-out despite Swedes’ struggles at U20 Four Nations Cup

Team Sweden struggled at the first scouting event for 2002-born prospects (i.e. players drafted this past summer) this season, the Under-20 Four Nations Cup in the Czech Republic, but the Hockey News’s Tony Ferrari gave a shout-out to Red Wings prospect Liam Dower Nilsson for his effort at the tournament:

The Swedes went winless in their three games over the event. Their roster was missing almost everyone expected to be on the world junior roster, with just a few notable names such as Liam Dower-Nilsson, Alexander Ljungkrantz, and Oliver Tärnström. The majority of the roster is filled with their ‘B team’ who were looking to put their name on the map.

Unfortunately for the Tre Kronor, the Swedes didn’t play well and their standouts were few and far between. Dower-Nilsson, a Detroit Red Wings prospect, had a decent showing with a few flashes of offensive flair as a passer.
