Tweet of note: ‘it’s not easy’ for Team Sweden to add Lucas Raymond to Olympic roster

IceHockeyGifs on Twitter offers us a glance behind the paywall…

Swedish Ice Hockey Association’s Olof Östblom doesn’t think they will be allowed to add Lucas Raymond to Sweden’s Olympic roster.

”-The signals we’re getting indicates it’s not that easy.”

No final decision has been made by the IIHF yet however. #LGRW— IcehockeyGifs (@IcehockeyG) December 6, 2021

Ostblom also spoke to’s Mattias Ek, explaining that the Swedes want to revise their “long list” of 55 players to add both Raymond and some European players who have impressed them. They haven’t received an answer from the IIHF as of yet.
