The Swedish men’s national team has registered NHL forwards Carl Grundstrom and Jacob Peterson to play at the 2022 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Finland.

Both players have already joined the team in Tampere and were registered to the official roster today.

Grundstrom, 24, finished his fourth NHL season with the Los Angeles Kings. In 54 games the Umea native had 9 goals and 6 assists and scored three times in six playoff games. It will be his first World Championship with the men’s senior national team after having represented Sweden at the U20 and U18 levels before.

Peterson, 22, joins Tre Kronor after his rookie season with the Dallas Stars. In 65 NHL games he scored 12 goals and had 5 assists. For the native of Lidkoping it will be the second IIHF tournament after the 2017 U18 Worlds.

Sweden has now two goalkeepers, seven defenders and 13 forward registered and open spots for two more skaters and one more goalie.
