Team Sweden announced that they’ve found the perfect candidate to replace the injured Alexander Steen on their World Cup of Hockey roster.

 

The 23-year-old Rickard Rakell of the Anaheim Ducks will fill in for Steen, who underwent shoulder surgery in June according to The Score. He posted 20 goals and 23 assists for the Ducks last season, and is touted to become a regular goal-scorer in the NHL.

 

Playing for his national team won’t be an issue for the Swede, as he’s had success with the junior team in 2012 and 2013 by helping them win the gold and silver medals.
