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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
