Jacob Markstrom


A Swede Embarassment

My first hockey post of the year which I am certain is sure to please Rusty (I probably didn’t have a first hockey post last year until probably March – who knows).

Just a great line from Yahoo! Sports Greg Wyshynski who wrote the following after Sweden’s loss to Canada in the World Junior Championship.

The last Swede to win Olympic gold in men’s platform diving was Erik Adlerz back in 1912. Based on his performance in the world junior championship loss last night against Canada, Swedish goalie Jacob Markstrom may be his nation’s next great diving hope.

If you wanna see the clips from the game with regular commentary here it is:

Also, make sure to check out a hilarious remix of Markstrom’s dives from last night’s game by including clips from the Mighty Ducks:
