Washington Capitals forward Marcus Johansson may have been devastated after Sweden’s 3-0 loss to Canada, but he accomplished a lot in his first Olympic tournament. He recorded one assist in five games and won a silver medal. That’s nothing to sneeze at. Teemu Selanne, the greatest Olympic scorer of all-time, has won three bronze medals and one solitary silver.
Johansson was one of the last players to receive his medal. He looked heartbroken as he accepted his prize from an IIHF official.
Nicklas Backstrom was not on the ice during the medal ceremony, but his name was announced by the PA as being part of Team Sweden. We’ll see if he gets a medal. I am doubtful.
