A two-time Olympian, Henrik will be looking to double up his gold medal from 2006. Playing on a line with his brother Daniel, he had four points (3-1-4) in eight games and finished third in the tournament in face-off win percentage (64.29%).

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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
