John Klingberg has been named the top defenseman at the 2018 World Championship.

Klingberg earned one goal and five assists in 10 games for Sweden's gold-medal winning squad at the tournament. He logged a game-high 35:03 of ice time in Sunday's shootout win over Switzerland in the gold-medal game.

Filip Forsberg scored the game-winning goal in the shootout to lead Sweden to a gold medal at the 2018 World Championship.

This is a great way for Forsberg to head into the off-season after Nashville's disappointing playoff run, which ended in the second round. Gustav Nyquist and Mika Zibanejad scored for Sweden in regulation against Switzerland, while the Swiss got goals from Nino Niederreiter and Timo Meier.

John Carlson hasn't scored a goal yet during the Eastern Conference Final, but he has had plenty of chances.

Carlson has collected 23 shots in Washington's series against Tampa Bay, including a total of eight in Game 5. "I think we're making a lot of good plays, we're getting a lot of good chances," he said. "Just that one extra guy here and there is a big difference for a goalie. I think we got to bring that extra guy in to possibly be a rebound option, pass option, just make him think a little bit, make him guess a little bit." Carlson has contributed four assists versus the Lightning and he has compiled 15 points in 17 playoff matches.

Dmitry Kulikov will return to the lineup on Sunday afternoon for Game 5 of the Western Conference Final.

Kulikov was paired with Tyler Myers during the pregame warmups. He hasn't played since Mar. 8 due to a back injury, so this will mark his 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs debut. Kulikov and Joe Morrow will play with Ben Chiarot and Toby Enstrom out of the lineup against Vegas.
