Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg is one of 10 players from Sweden's silver-medal winners at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship that will take part in USA Hockey's National Junior Evaluation Camp next month.
The camp, Aug. 3-10 in Lake Placid, N.Y., will see Sweden practice and play exhibition games against teams from the United States, Canada and Finland. It's the first step in the roster makeup for teams taking part in the 2014 World Juniors in Malmo, Sweden, which runs from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 2014.
Forsberg, who was the captain of last year's team, had three goals and two assists in six games. However, his availability for Sweden at this year's WJC is questionable after Forsberg made his NHL debut late last season. After totaling 33 points in 38 games with Leksand in Sweden's Allsvenskan, he had one assist in five NHL games in April after he was traded to Nashville from the Washington Capitals.
