Hogberg turns heads for Sweden

Marcus Hogberg stole the show during U20 evaluation games on Wednesday, stopping 27 shots to shut out the United States by a 4-0 score.

Hogberg, a 2013 third round pick of the Sens, made several big stops for the Swedes in tight, including a pair of highlight reel cross crease saves. With Sweden back in action today against Canada, it is unknown if Hogberg will get the start again or if they will turn to Columbus prospect Oscar Dansk.

According to Hockey Prospectus writer Corey Pronman, Hogberg has caught the eye of Swedish coach Rickard Gronborg.

Hogberg held fellow Sens prospect Quentin Shore off the scoresheet for Team USA with the shutout.

Curtis Lazar will check into Team Canada’s lineup for this week’s round of tune up games after sitting out yesterday’s tilt with Finland.

Canada won their first game of the round robin by a 5-3 margin over the Fins on Wednesday. He has been playing on a line with fellow 2013 first round picks Bo Horvat (Vancouver) and Sean Monahan (Calgary) to this point in camp as a right winger and it appears that he’ll continue to fill that role in today’s game.

Lazar, his linemates and the following prospects will be checking in for Team Canada.

The only undrafted member of that group is Connor McDavid, the 16-year-old phenom of the OHL’s Erie Otters who is not eligible to be drafted until 2015.

Shore and the USA take on Finland at 1:00 pm today while Lazar and Team Canada will face Hogberg and Sweden at 4:15 pm.
