Carl Hagelin spoke this morning about being selected to his first Olympic games:
  • ?On his thoughts heading into today's announcement, "I knew in the summer that I was on the roster of 35 that had a chance. I hadn't spoken to any of the coaches. I know they came to one game and said that it looked good. I was hoping to make it and it's a huge honor to make Team Sweden."
  • On his development as a player after the Olympics, "It will give me a lot of experience. You get to play with and against the best players in the world so for me this is the first time that I will play with the national team at this level, World Juniors was the last time I played for Sweden. I am excited and will learn a lot from this."
  • On the roster, "Even when we had the orientation, you get to know a lot of the guys. It's a lot of stars on the team. We have the Sedins, Zetterberg, Backstrom and Hank in net. On D we have Karlsson. It's a great team and I am looking forward to it."
  • On going with Henrik, "It will help. He has been nice to me since day one. It's always nice to know someone but I also know a lot of the other guys from skating in the summer and playing against them. It shouldn't be a problem but having Hank will help."
  • On last night, "I don't think it's too much frustration. We showed a lot of character coming back in the third. We didn't play the way we wanted in the last five minutes but other than that we played a solid third period. It's no frustration. We want to get back to it and get two points instead of one."
  • On measuring the team, "I think anytime you play that team, I remember my first time here they have so many skill guys and All-Stars. That is a guy where everyone shows up, everyone on the team has to play at their best and I think everyone in here is excited to play them. It's a tough task but we are up for it."
