Nylander fronts Swedish Hlinka entry

Aaron Vickers2014 Draft Center, International Events

Four players who appear in Future Considerations’ preliminary ranking for the 2014 NHL Draft have been chosen to represent Sweden at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial from Aug. 5-10 in Breclav, Czech Republic and Piestany, Slovakia.

The roster features potential top pick William Nylander, who is 2nd in FC’s preliminary list released in early July behind Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice. The 5-foot-10, 170 pound pivot is the son of former NHLer Michael Nylander and has some of the same gifts his father possessed, including some of the quickest hands and feet available in the 2014 selection process.

Joining Nylander on the team is Anton Karlsson (10th), Adrian Kempe (22nd) and Oskar Lindblom (23rd).
