The Winnipeg Jets have decided to allow David Gustafsson to play for his country at the upcoming World Junior tournament. Gustafsson has been loaned to Team Sweden after playing in 22 games with the Jets this season.
Just like several other countries, Sweden will get a player with NHL experience that should be able to dominate the junior competition. Gustafsson already played in this tournament last season and has lots of international experience. Even without huge offensive upside, he should be on the ice a ton for a Swedish squad that is known for their defensive acumen.
