Scandinavian teams shuffle rosters

Disappointingly, Norway will not be able to add Per-Age Skroder to its roster after all. The runner-up in this year's Swedish Elitserien goal-scoring race with MoDo Ornskoldsvik ran into visa problems at Arlanda Airport in Stockholm and was informed he would not be able to continue on to Russia. It was originally anticipated Skroder would not be able to join Norway anyway due to his wife's recently giving birth.

Meanwhile, Sweden learned that goalie Johan Holmqvist will not be joining the roster due to personal reasons.

Instead, Erik Ersberg of HV71 will be added as the third goalie. Ersberg, 25, won the Honken Trophy as Sweden's Goalie of the Year after posting a 2.39 GAA in 41 games, although his play fell off in the playoffs, where his team lost in the seventh game of the semi-finals to MoDo.
