Dallas Stars defenceman John Klingberg and Arizona Coyotes blueliner Oliver Ekman-Larsson headline Sweden's roster for next month's world hockey championship in Denmark.
Sweden, who defeated Canada in a shootout for gold last year, named 14 NHL players to their roster for the tournament.
Sweden also released a list of players who declined the option to play at the tournament. Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson was among the 18 who declined an invitation, in a group which also includes Detroit Red Wings veterans Henrik Zetterberg and Niklas Kronwall, along with Vancouver Canucks defenceman Alexander Edler.
New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, as previously reported, declined due to a knee injury. The Rangers will, however, be represented by Mika Zibanejad and rookie Lias Andersson.
The Canadian NHL teams will be represented by Mikael Backlund of the Calgary Flames, Adam Larsson of the Edmonton Oilers, Jacob de la Rose of the Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators forward Magnus Pääjärvi and Vancouver Cancuks goaltender Anders Nilsson.
The tournament runs May 4-20 in Copenhagen and Herning, Denmark.
