After winning silver with a 25-man roster filled with 24 NHL pros at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games, just one fewer than the U.S. and Canada rosters four years ago, Sweden’s 2018 Olympic team includes one Stanley Cup champion (Viktor Stalberg, 2012-13 Chicago Blackhawks), the brother of future Hockey Hall of Fame goalie Henrik Lundqvist (Joel Lundqvist) and just one player who wore the Tre Kronor at a previous Olympic Games (Goalie Jhonas Enroth, but he did not play. See Henrik Lundqvist.).

Names in bold denote previous Olympic appearances.
