The Winnipeg Jets have loaned forward David Gustafsson to Team Sweden for the upcoming World Junior Hockey Championship.

Gustafsson, 19, has one goal in 22 games with the Jets this season. He was originally a second-round pick by the Jets in 2018.

Gustafsson has represented Sweden on the international stage twice before, winning gold at the U17 World Hockey Challenge in 2017 and a bronze medal at the U18 World Championship in 2018.

Sweden is looking to rebound from a quarterfinal loss in last year’s tournament. They open the 2020 tournament against rival Finland on Dec. 26.
