The 2022 World Junior Championship wrapped up on Saturday with Canada taking down Finland in the gold medal game. Before that matchup, Sweden triumphed over Czechia to win bronze. On that Swedish team was Washington Capitals prospect Oskar Magnusson.
Magnusson, the Capitals’ seventh round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, skated on Sweden’s third line in the 3-1 victory, ending the game with a shot on goal in 13:48 of ice time. The Swedes were led from the net out as 2021 Minnesota Wild first-round selection Jesper Wallstedt made 27 stops en route to the podium.
