Rasmus Sandin still injured as Sweden is eliminated from IIHF World Championship
Latvia defeated Sweden in a 3-1 upset Thursday, knocking the Swedes out of the IIHF World Championship in the quarterfinals. Sweden played the elimination game without one of their top players, with Rasmus Sandin still out of the lineup with a lower-body injury.
The loss marks the fourth straight tournament where Sweden failed make the podium, last doing so with a gold medal win in 2018. Team Latvia, playing at home in Riga, will advance to the semifinals for the first time in the tournament’s history.
