Armia shut out as Swedes roll

Joel Armia was held off the score sheet Tuesday as Finland was throttled by Sweden 8-2 at the U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp in Lake Placid.

Jusso Ikonen ('13) scored his third goal of camp to give Finland a 2-1 lead in the first minute of the second period, but the Swedes took over from there with seven unanswered strikes. The Finns, who drop to 0-2 in their overseas visit, return to action Wednesday against Team USA.

William Karlsson led the Swedes with a hat trick. Viktor Arvidsson potted a pair of goals while Filip Forsberg had a goal and two helpers. Karlsson and Arvidsson each have five points (2+3) through the Swedes first two games. Sweden has outscored their opponents by a 13-3 count through their first two games. They’ll take on Team USA on Friday.
