Axel Jonsson Fjällby and Alexander Nylander were left with silver medals instead of gold ones after Sweden’s 3-1 loss to Canada in the World Junior Championship Finals last night. Although the outcome may not have been ideal, both forwards had outstanding performances during the tournament, which we are extremely proud of.
Nylander, who served as an assistant captain, had six assists and one goal in the seven games played, helping Sweden become one of the top offensive teams in the tournament. He was also selected by the coaches as one of the top three players for Sweden in the tournament, along with Rasmus Dahlin and Lias Andersson.
Jonsson Fjällby, with two goals and two assists, caught everyone’s attention this year with his ridiculous speed and, of course, luscious locks. Take a look at his SHG against USA in the semi finals below.
