Enroth replaces injured Lerner for Sweden at World Cup

In what I'm going to describe as "News to keep an eye on but not necessarily worry about", Team Sweden has announced that Robin Lehner is pulling out of the World Cup of Hockey to focus on getting ready for the upcoming season. Team Sweden's head coach said Lehner's ankle "isn't 100 percent", so this is likely a precautionary move. He'll replace Robin Lehner of the Buffalo Sabres, who is reportedly still dealing with lingering issues from an ankle injury sustained during the first game of the 2015-16 season. Barilko scored the winning goal for the Leafs in the 1951 Stanley Cup Final, Toronto's fourth Cup victory in five seasons.

Sabres general manager Tim Murray released this statement. Enroth will join New York Ranger star Henrik Lundqvist and Jacob Markstrom in the Swedish net.

Enroth, who spent last season with the Los Angeles Kings, recently signed a one-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Rookie center Auston Matthews will not take part in the tournament, as the 18-year-old top overall pick will be participating in the World Cup of Hockey as a member of Team North America.

The 28-year-old has a 2.80 goals-against average and.911 save percentage in 147 career National Hockey League games.

"With Jhonas we get an experienced goalie that we know can win games for Tre Kronor, with the 2013 World Championship performance fresh in mind", Gronborg said.
