2016 Sweden World Cup of Hockey Roster: Alexander Steen Selected

Steener made it by a nose, whiel Patrik Berglund was left off of the initial rosters.

Alexander Steen's strong season, and consistently strong play, has earned him a spot on Team Sweden's World Cup of Hockey squad. Patrik Berglund, who missed nearly half of this season with an off-season injury, has been left off of Sweden's initial roster. He can still be named later when additional players are added.

G Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers
G Jacob Markstrom, Vancouver Canucks

D Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Arizona Coyotes
D Victor Hedman, Tampa Bay Lightning
D Niklas Hjalmarsson, Chicago Blackhawks
D Erik Karlsson, Ottawa Senators
D Niklas Kronwall, Detroit Red Wings
D Anton Stralman, Tampa Bay Lightning

F Nicklas Backstrom, Washington Capitals
F Loui Eriksson, Boston Bruins
F Filip Forsberg, Nashville Predators
F Gabriel Landeskog, Colorado Avalanche
F Daniel Sedin, Vancouver Canucks
F Henrik Sedin, Vancouver Canucks
F Alexander Steen, St. Louis Blues
F Henrik Zetterberg, Detroit Red Wings

That's not the youngest group of forwards, save for Forsberg and Landeskog, but they still have some oomph. Of  course, the defense is solid, and you can't go wrong with King Henrik. Out of the announced rosters so far today, Team Sweden is the most well-rounded and one for the North American squads to look out for.
