Despite the 2010 Olympics being his first International event since the 2006 Olympics, he had plenty of experience early on in his career playing for Sweden at the European Junior Championships (1997, 1998), the World Junior Championships (1999, 2000) and the World Championships (1999, 2000, 2001, 2005).

His nine assists and 13 points led the World Junior Championships in 2000. Other future NHL players featured on Team Sweden at that tournament were: Jonas Frogren, Niklas Kronwall, Daniel Sedin, Rickard Wallin and Henrik Zetterberg.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
