LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Here are the lineups Finland and Sweden will put on the ice for Tuesday's game at the Junior Evaluation Camp.
Worth watching is the top Finnish defense pair of team captain Olli Maatta, a Pittsburgh Penguins 2012 first-round pick, and Rasmus Ristolainen, a candidate to be picked in the first round of the 2013 NHL Draft.
After this morning's practice, coach Harri Rindell wasn't sure if he was going to keep his two best defensemen on the same pair or break them up to spark other players.
One change to the initial roster: Finland has scratched Nashville Predators prospect Miikka Salomaki and replaced him with Toni Kallela. Salomaki was listed as left wing on a line with Robert Leino and Joel Armia. No reason was given for the lineup change.
For Sweden, Mika Zibanejad will start at right wing on the second line, with Jeremy Boyce Rotevall on the left side and Joachim Nermark in the middle. Zibanejad, a 2011 first-round pick of the Ottawa Senators, scored the overtime goal that gave Sweden the gold medal at the 2012 World Junior Championship.
