Boston Bruins’ Top Prospect Makes Sweden’s World Juniors Roster

The 2022 IIHF World Junior Championships will begin in Edmonton, Alberta, in late July, and Boston Bruins’ prospect Fabian Lysell is on the Swedish roster. Lysell was the Bruins’ first-round pick in 2021, selected 21st overall. The 5’10” 176-pound right-wing played for the Vancouver Giants last season in the Western Hockey League.

The Gothenburg, Sweden native registered 22-40-62 in his first season with the Giants and helped lead the team to a historic first-round victory over the Everett Silvertips. It was the first time in league history that an eighth seed eliminated a top seed in the first round of the playoffs. Lysell led the way with an impressive 15 points in the six-game series, including five assists in Game 1 and four assists in the series-clinching win in Game 6.

The highly-skilled right-wing will join fellow first-round NHL draft picks Simon Edvinsson (Detroit – 6th overall), William Eklund (San Jose – 7th overall), Isak Rosen (Buffalo – 14th overall), and goalie Jesper Wallstedt (Minnesota – 20th overall) on a loaded Swedish roster. The 19-year-old Lysell should compete for a spot on the Bruins’ roster in training camp. The 19-year-old could play in Providence of the American Hockey League to start the season.

The IIHF World Junior Championships will take place from July 30 – August 20.
