Finland

Leo Komarov: 13GP, 2G, 6Pts
Years: 2006, 2007
Medals: Bronze

Uncle Leo was with Team Finland as they beat Team USA in the Bronze medal game in 2006 where former Islanders forward Jesse Joensuu scored twice.

In 2007, Leo was the captain for Team Finland that was pushed out in the quarterfinals by Team USA with a convincing 6-3 win.

Sweden

Dmytro Timashov: 7GP, 2G, 5A, 7Pts
Years: 2016

Sweden didn’t medal in 2016, but recent acquisition Dmytro Timashov finished third in scoring for the Swedes with seven points in seven games. Both of his goals in 2016 came in Sweden’s 8-3 tournament-opening win over Switzerland.

*I know he might not be a roster player this year, but the Islanders traded for him after I published my Islanders prospects at the WJC last week.
