Mikael Backlund is on the bubble when it comes to the roster selection for Team Sweden for the World Cup.
Backlund recently finished a stint serving Sweden in the 2016 World Championship where Sweden only had eight NHL regulars on the roster. Because of the team's relative lack of NHL talent, Sweden leaned heavily on Backlund, getting him to log over 21 minutes in six of the Swede's eight games. "It’s always an honor to play for Team Sweden and for me to say no, it’s going to take a lot," Backlund said. Perhaps his willingness to answer the call when asked will help push him over the edge in the roster selection process. If he is part of Team Sweden, it would be as a third or fourth-line forward.
