August, 12, 2011
Stars prospects John Klingberg and Patrik Nemeth each picked up one assist as Sweden rolled over Finland 8-4 Friday afternoon at the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp in Lake Placid, New York.

Klingberg, who missed Sweden’s last game at the camp with an undisclosed injury, assisted on a five-on-three power play goal that put Sweden up 4-2 in the second period. Klingberg has one goal and one assist in three games.

Nemeth assisted on an even strength goal early in the third that gave the Swedes a 5-2 lead. Nemeth, who picked up his eighth minor penalty at the camp in Friday's game, now has one goal, one assist and 16 penalty minutes in four games.

The camp concludes Saturday afternoon with Sweden taking on the USA.
