World Juniors update

Oscar Moller had an assist in Sweden’s 5-0 victory over Russia today but left the game in the second period, apparently with an upper-body injury. There hasn’t been any official word — at least that I’ve heard — of the severity.

Sweden moved to 4-0 with the victory, and the winner of today’s USA-Canada game, which starts momentarily, also will be 4-0. Sweden and the USA-Canada will advance directly to the semifinals, to face the winners of the two quarterfinal games.

Here’s a story from TSN this afternoon about Thomas Hickey, Kings defensive prospect and Team Canada captain:
