Following a two year stint in Division IA, the Norwegians are back and hoping to stick full time after a promotion during the 2013 World Juniors. Highlighting the 2014 squad is forward  Markus Søberg, a 2013 sixth-round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets has 13 goals and 22 points in 19 games with Frölunda Gothenburg in Sweden, as well as potential 2014 NHL draft picks Mattias Norstebo, Andreas Klavestad and Martin Ronnild. Seven players currently compete in Swedish professional and junior leagues, so it will be interesting to see how they hold up on the big ice in Malmo this time around.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
