The Sweden Ice Hockey Federation announced final rosters for this month’s under-16 Three Nation’s tournament and under-17 Five Nations tournament. In total, 17 former Sweden Selects players will suit up to once again represent their country on the international stage. 

Eleven 2007-born youth hockey players will skate in Kopřivnice, Czech Republic, for Sweden’s U16 national team. This comes less than four years after they represented Sweden at the World Selects Invitational and World Selects Trophy tournaments. 

Additionally, six 2006s will head to Romanshorn, Switzerland, for the U17 Five Nation’s Tournament. They last represented Sweden in 2019 at the 13U World Selects Invitational in Chamonix, France.

Names like Love Härenstam, Anton Frondell, Melvin Novotny and Jakob Ihs-Wozniak are among some of the most notable youth hockey prospects in Sweden. Other Sweden Selects alumni include:
