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

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
