Andersson added to World Junior roster

I’ve just learned that Canucks prospect Peter Andersson has been added to the Swedish World Junior roster, as Erik Karlsson will be sticking with the Senators. He will be joining fellow Canucks prospect Anton Rodin on the club.

I’m actually working on an article about Andersson, and I interviewed him a few days ago. Here’s what he said at that time, about not making the team: “Of course I was disappointed, but there are a lot of great players born in ’90 and ’91 which makes it harder to make the team. I hope that I’ll go next year.”

Will be interesting to see how Andersson and Rodin fair on the world stage. Good luck to both of them!

Stay tuned for the Andersson article.
