2010 draft picks Sebastian Wännstrom (Sweden) and Jani Hakanpää (Finland) have both managed to find a place on the scoresheet in early action at the USA U20 Evaluation Camp and Tournament in Lake Placid, NY.
In Monday's game, a 5-3 victory by Sweden over Finland, Wännstrom (sweater # 20) picked up an assist on Sweden's first goal, a power play tally at 14:46 of the first period. Hakanpää (sweater # 7) was assessed a tripping penalty at 1:09 of the third period in a losing effort for Team Finland.
Earlier today, Team USA doubled up the Swedes by a 6-3 score. Wännstrom was held off the scoresheet for Tre Kronor, with no points or penalty time. Hakanpää and the Finns will face Team USA tomorrow at 1600 hours EDT.
