Marcus Johansson Has Broken Finger, May Require Surgery

In an interview with Swedish news outlet, Aftonbladet, Capitals forward Marcus Johansson said he will not be participating in the World Championships due to a broken finger. 

“I absolutely wanted to go to the World Cup, but it seems doubtful because I have a broken finger and might need surgery”, he told Sportbladet.

Andre Burakovsky is also not likely to participate in the World Championships due to his current contract status. Burakovsky is an Unrestricted Free Agent.

In the interview, Nicklas Backstrom was asked if he would participate in the World Cup. Backstrom replied, “We’ll see. Get back to me”.
