On the fence about watching Winter Olympic men's hockey without NHL players? Sweden just gave you a considerable enticement: Frölunda HC's Rasmus Dahlin, the brilliant 17-year-old defenseman and expected 2018 first overall pick, made the cut for the national team. He joins a roster with several familiar names to NHL fans, including goalie Jhonas Enroth, who last played for the Los Angeles Kings; Viktor Stalberg, formerly of the Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators; and Linus Omark, perhaps best known for his viral YouTube shootout goals … less so for his time with the Edmonton Oilers. Sweden might be the prohibitive favorite for gold.
