ANDERS NILSSON SELECTED TO TEAM SWEDENWill likely back up Markstrom at WJC

Congratulations to Anders and to Ryan Jankowski, Vellu-Pekka Kautonen, Anders Kallur, Sudsie Maharaj and the scouts who selected the goalie with the first pick in the third round in June. Florida stud prospect Jacob Markstrom is the expected No. 1 for Team Sweden, but this is a great honor and experience for Nilsson – who is on our list of the Islanders’ top ten prospects (out any day now!).
