Sabres 2022 first-rounder Noah Ostlund and 2023 second-rounder Anton Wahlberg are part of Sweden’s 25-man roster. Ostlund, 19, had four points (1 goal, 3 assists) in the 2023 World Junior in Edmonton last December and split time in the Swedish Hockey League and the Junior level with Djurgardens last season. Instead of coming over to play in the American Hockey League next season, Ostlund has been loaned to the SHL’s Vaxjo Lakers.
Wahlberg, 18, played for the Malmo Warhawks at two levels last season and scored six points (3 goals, 3 assists) in seven games at the U-18s.
