by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks

Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm today was added to Team Sweden’s 23-man roster for the World Cup of Hockey 2016. The Ducks have a total of seven players participating in the upcoming World Cup, including Ryan Getzlaf for Canada, Ryan Kesler for USA, John Gibson for Team North America, Sami Vatanen for Finland, and Jakob Silfverberg and Rickard Rakell for Sweden. Lindholm takes the spot of injured Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall on the Swedish roster. The best-on-best international hockey tournament will be held in Toronto, Canada from Sept. 17-Oct. 1, 2016.

Lindholm, 22 (1/20/94), was a member of the top defensive pairing for Sweden at the 2012 Under-18 World Championship, helping his team to a silver medal with 0-4=4 points in six games. He also represented Sweden heading into the 2013 World Junior Championship, but was injured during an exhibition game and was unable to participate in the tournament. A native of Helsingborg, Sweden, Lindholm has scored 23-69=92 points with a +61 rating and 108 penalty minutes in 236 career NHL games with Anaheim.
