Hurricanes forward Lindholm to play in WJC
The Carolina Hurricanes will allow forward Elias Lindholm to play for Sweden at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, according to TSN.

The Carolina Hurricanes will allow forward Elias Lindholm to play for Sweden at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, general manager Jim Rutherford announced Wednesday.

With this year's WJC in Malmo, Sweden, the national junior team certainly is happy to have Lindholm, who was not available for the summer evaluation camp in Lake Placid, N.Y., in August so he could prepare for the start of the NHL season.

Lindholm, 19, has split the season between the Hurricanes and the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League. In 21 NHL games Lindholm has three goals and four assists. He was the fifth pick of the 2013 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
