Ullmark off to 4-Nations

Linus Ullmark has left the Modo J20 to play for Team Sweden this weekend in a U20 four nations tournament in Kravare, Czech Republic. Team Sweden will play games against Russia (Friday), the Czech Republic (Saturday), and Finland (Sunday) in the three-day event. The same four nations will again convene in early November for another round of games.

Ullmark is coming off a 1-1 mark including a shutout in Modo's preseason visit to Gimo. He'll be sharing the nets with Joel Lassinantti, who earlier in the month joined Ullmark as the odd men out as Sweden put together their final roster for USA's National Junior Development Camp in Lake Placid, NY.

Other notables on Sweden's roster include fellow 2012 draft picks Sebastian Collberg (MON), Ludvig Bystrom (DAL), and Erik Karlsson (CAR), as well as 2013 draft prospects Elias Lindholm, Gustav Possler, Jacob de la Rose, and Linus Arnesson.

Finland's roster has yet to be confirmed but it is possible that Joel Armia remains in Pori for Assat's Saturday game against Vaxjo.
