Anton Stralman, Victor Hedman playing for Sweden
It looks like Anton Stralman and Victor Hedman could be paired again for Team Sweden.
Stralman is joining Hedman on the roster for Sweden's team for next month's World Championships. The two played together at the September World Cup of Hockey.
While Hedman was a lock for this team, Stralman had said he was waiting to have a few medical issues checked out. He must have been cleared as Stralman is heading to Paris for the tournament.
We all know Stralman and Hedman's feelings on the NHL - as of now - not participating in the 2018 Olympics. But at least they'll have a chance at worlds.
Hedman and Stralman will be among the several Lightning players competing at World Championships. Coach Jon Cooper is the head coach for Team Canada, which also has rookie center Brayden Point. Nikita Kucherov and Andrei Vasilevskiy will be competing for Russia. It's uncertain if Ondrej Palat will play for Czech, or Tyler Johnson for U.S.
