Finland meets Sweden in Lake Placid finale

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The final game of this week's national junior evaluation camp features Finland and Sweden getting back injured players.

For Finland, top defenseman Olli Maatta returns to the lineup after missing most of the week with the flu. The Pittsburgh Penguins prospect is paired with Julius Honka, a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft. In his game action earlier in the week, he had been paired with Ville Pokka, a New York Islanders draft pick.

For Sweden, Oscar Dansk will be back in goal after missing a few days while recovering from taking a puck off his mask. Also, center Oskar Sundqvist is back in the lineup after missing a few days with a sore neck sustained Monday when he collided with the metal stanchion at the end of the team's bench. He's on the second line between Jacob de la Rose and Filip Sandberg.

Here are the lineups both teams will use:

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
