Could Lysell be added to Team Sweden for World Championships?

It’s no secret Fabian Lysell is the Boston Bruins’ top prospect. The 19-year-old Sweden native has done nothing but shines since coming over to play in the WHL. He was taken in the first round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft. Lysell has been electric for the Vancouver Giants as he scored 22 goals and 40 assists for 62 points across 53 games played during the regular season.

Lysell has continued that scoring and playmaking throughout the first two rounds of the 2022 WHL playoffs. Through 11 playoff games, the dynamic playmaker has recorded four goals and 17 assists for 21 points with a plus-12 rating. He was vital in Vancouvers’ first-round upset over the Everett Silvertips and has helped the Giants stay in their second-round series with the Kamloops Blazers. The Giants find themselves down 3-2 in the best of seven series as they prepare for game six tomorrow.

The exciting news surrounding Lysell is that if the Giants do get eliminated tomorrow, he could head back to Sweden to play for his home country. Team Sweden is preparing their roster for World Championships and currently has five roster spots still open. While it may seem like a long shot, Lysell has proven time after time he has the talent to play at an elite level.

Lysell will undoubtedly be battling for an NHL roster spot once camp kicks off the 2022-2023 season. If Lysell is chosen to represent Sweden, Boston fans worldwide will get to see exactly what their top prospect is capable of bringing to the storied franchise. In a time when the Bruins core is getting older, and the game of hockey is getting faster, Lysell is the exact type of player the Bruins are looking to add to their roster moving forward.
