Sport: The players are admittedly dependent on how things go in the playoffs for their respective teams. Lilleberg’s Tampa Bay Lightning is 0-3 in games against the Florida Panthers, while Emilio Pettersen’s Texas Stars beat the Manitoba Moose and face the Milwaukee Admirals in a best-of-five series.

– I had dinner with Emil a month ago, and he was very positive about the WC games when he is finished over there. But it is uncertain whether Tampa will send him to Syracuse, or what will happen when they eventually pull out, says Johansson

First match for Emilio Pettersen & co. will not be played until 2 May. The series will end as late as May 12, if they play all five games.

– I’m trying to focus on the play-offs here now, but of course I want to play in the WC if an opportunity opens up for that, says Pettersen.

– I’m not sure what happens with Dallas in the playoffs, so I have to take it as it comes. I can’t say anything 100 percent now, he replies.

From before, veterans Mats Zuccarello and Patrick Thoresen have made themselves available for the World Championship in Prague, which will be played from 10 to 26 May.
