Competing in his first Olympic Games, Hornqvist is the second youngest player on the Swedish roster at 23 years of age. At the time the roster was named (Dec. 27), Hornqvist was tied for third among Swedish NHLers in goals (13).
He led the team with six goals at the 2008 World Championship and first competed for his country at the 2007 World Junior Championships.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
