This just in from Sportnset hockey insider Chris Johnston: Swedish Allsvenskan team Björklöven is reportedly being investigated after allegations that the team "fixed" or "took a dive" in this evening's 8-4 loss to rival team Mora.

Check it out:


Suffice it to say that if these allegations wind up being true then this will absolutely rock the entire Allsvenskan league and, by extension, the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). 

Björklöven's CEO, Anders Blomberg calls tonight's results "completely unacceptable" and in fact welcomes the league's full investigation into the allegations. 

From the team's website translated from Swedish:

-I hope that this is sorted out properly and that we turn over all the stones that can be turned over. Only the suspicion is serious enough, but if it turns out to be true, it is of course completely unacceptable and something that must never occur in our association. These players are trained in what applies in Björklöven and this is so far from the culture we stand for, says Anders Blomberg, who after the match gathered the whole team and the coaching staff to talk through both the effort and the suspicions.
-I have an incredibly hard time believing that someone in Björklöven has been involved in such a type of activity. Of course, we welcome the fact that the question is being investigated whether there are now suspicions and speculations, says Anders Blomberg, who takes the opportunity to turn directly to the supporters.
- I am as disappointed as you after the loss, but I promise that we will do everything to come back stronger.

More to come.
