The Swedish U20 national team has to continue the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship without one of its best players.

William Nylander, who suffered a head injury in the first game vs. Switzerland, will not be able to play tomorrow’s semi-final vs. Finland and will also miss the medal game the day after. The decision was made by the medical team today. He will leave the team immediately and return to Toronto.

Also Adam Ollas Mattsson, who suffered a fracture, will not be able to play anymore.
