‘Tis the season for Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championship rosters as Sweden announced theirs. Included on the Swedish roster is Oskar Sundvist, the Penguins’ third round (81st overall) selection in the 2012 NHL draft.

The nineteen year old Sundqvist will be making his debut in the Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championship. Oskar Sundqvist has appeared in twenty-three games for Skelleftea of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL), scoring five points (2G, 3A). Sweden is looking at Sundqvist as one of the players that could fill voids left by Filip Forsberg, Elias Lindholm, Rickard Rakell, and Victor Rask.

The deadline to cut rosters down to twenty-two players is December 25th.
