LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Top 2013 NHL Draft prospect Alexander Wennberg, a center originally listed as a defenseman, is not in the lineup for Sweden for Thursday's game against the U.S.

Sweden originally listed two players wearing No. 7, Wennberg and Tom Nilsson, a defenseman. With the U.S. opting to dress eight defenders Thursday, Sweden answered in kind and made Wennberg a scratch.
