Backstrom to Compete for Olympic Gold with Swedish Team
A big Hockey Mom toast to the fabulous Nicklas Backstrom, who to no one's surprise, was named to represent Sweden's Olympic hockey team. He'll join the Sedin wonder twins (Henrik and Daniel), along with veterans Peter Forsberg (now playing in Sweden) and Henrik Lundqvist. Half the Detroit Red Wings will be Nick's mates on Team Sweden as well, including Nicklas Lidstrom, Niklas Kronwall, Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Holmstrom.
