Sven Andrighetto

Until July 1, forward Sven Andrighetto is still a member of the Colorado Avalanche. After that… well, he’s an unrestricted free agent. So, we don’t really know what’s in store for him.

In any case, Andrighetto has done pretty well in the tournament so far. He’s played in two games and earned a goal:

Fun fact: Former Colorado Avalanche goalie Reto Berra is also playing for Team Switzerland. He’s played two games so far, earning a win in both.

Indeed, Team Switzerland is second only to Russia in Group B. They have won all four of their games in regulation, having earned 12 points. The difference-maker is the goals for/against ratio. Russia’s is 23:2, while Switzerland’s is 20:2.

Switzerland next plays May 18 against Sweden.
