DETROIT -- Sweden's Olympic hockey team has replaced an injured Detroit Red Wings forward with a healthy one.

Gustav Nyquist was given a spot on the roster on Monday to replace Johan Franzen.

The 24-year-old Nyquist has been a key player lately for the Red Wings and that likely helped him earn a spot for the Sochi Games.

Marcus Johansson of the Washington Capitals and Patrick Hornqvist of the Nashville Predators, both of whom have more points than Nyquist this season, were also potential candidates to play for the Swedes.

Franzen was ruled out to play in Russia because of a concussion. He played in the 2010 Olympics.
