The Blueshirts trio have made fine starts to their club seasons in Sweden. Hagelin’s seven-game stint in Sodertajle has revitalised the Allsvenskan club, winners of six of those games. Lindberg and Fasth, meanwhile, have proved standouts in strong starts for Elitserien sides Skelleftea and league- leading HV71.
Carl Hagelin, Oscar Lindberg and Jesper Fasth have all been named in Sweden’s squad for the upcoming Karjala Cup tournament today. The full international call-ups are a first for both Hagelin and Lindberg.
