Nashville Predators general manager David Poile announced Sunday that the club has loaned forward Filip Forsberg to the Swedish National Team for the 2014 World Junior Championships, taking place Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Malmo, Sweden.

Forsberg, 19, has five points (one goal, four assists) in 12 games with Nashville, and eight points (three goals, five assists) in seven games with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League this season.

The Ostervala, Sweden native helped Sweden win gold at the 2012 World Junior Championships, and captained the Swedes to a silver medal at the 2013 World Juniors, being named to the tournament's All-Star Team in the process.

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
