Lindholm to be assigned to Sweden's WJC Team

Posted December 18, 2013

The Carolina Hurricanes will assign forward Elias Lindholm to Sweden’s World Junior Championship team.

Lindholm, 19, has totaled seven points (3g, 4a) in 21 games during his rookie NHL season with the Hurricanes. This will mark the second consecutive year the Boden, Sweden, native has represented his country at the IIHF World Junior Championship, as he captured silver with Sweden at the tournament last year. Lindholm (6’1”, 192 lbs.) also won silver with Sweden at the 2012 U-18 World Junior Championship. The 2014 World Junior Championship will be held in Malmo, Sweden from Dec. 26, 2013-Jan. 5, 2014.

The Hurricanes host the Washington Capitals on Friday night at PNC Arena (7 p.m., FOX Sports Carolinas, Hurricanes Radio Network).

    Unfortunately, as skilled as he is, he's frail. Every time someone hits him, he misses at least a week. So much for JR's wanting to draft someone that could help the team now. He could have traded up to get Seth Jones but after the Jack Johnson fiasco I think he's vowed to never take a defenseman in the first round since he hasn't. Seth was a once in a long time opportunity that he passed on.
