Marcus Kruger will be making his first Olympic appearance for Team Sweden this week. Kruger has experience playing for Sweden in World Cup action but this will be the biggest international scene for Kruger. Kruger will be called upon to play the same role he does for the Hawks more than likely being a role player that makes the team stronger by locking down the oppositions tougher lines.
Kruger has success putting pucks in the net while playing international hockey so we will set his over under at 1 Goal and 3 assists.
