Jarnkrok and Moser Added to World Championship Rosters
Nashville Predators prospects Calle Jarnkrok (Sweden) and Simon Moser (Switzerland) have been added to their respective nations\u2019 rosters for the 2014 World Championship, taking place May 9-25 in Minsk, Belarus. Their 2013-14 season ended last night when the Milwaukee Admirals, Nashville\u2019s primary developmental affiliate in the American Hockey League, was eliminated from the Calder Cup Playoffs.

Nashville Predators prospects Calle Jarnkrok (Sweden) and Simon Moser (Switzerland) have been added to their respective nations’ rosters for the 2014 World Championship, taking place May 9-25 in Minsk, Belarus. Their 2013-14 season ended last night when the Milwaukee Admirals, Nashville’s primary developmental affiliate in the American Hockey League, was eliminated from the Calder Cup Playoffs.

Jarnkrok and Moser’s additions brings Nashville’s representation at the tournament up to 11 – Assistant Coach Phil Housley (United States), Video Coach Lawrence Feloney (United States), forward Craig Smith (United States), defensemen Seth Jones (United States), Ryan Ellis (Canada), Roman Josi (Switzerland) and Mattias Ekholm (Sweden), and goaltenders Pekka Rinne (Finland) and 2013 draft pick Jusse Saros (Finland) have all been named since Nashville’s season concluded.

This is Jarnkrok’s third consecutive World Championship appearance; he helped the Swedes win the Gold Medal on home soil last May after making his debut at the tournament as a 20-year-old in 2012. He has also represented the Tre Kronor at the 2011 World Junior Championships and the 2010 Under-18 World Championships.

After a March 5 trade from the Detroit organization, the Gavle, Sweden native posted five goals and nine points in six regular-season games for Milwaukee, and nine points (2g-7a) in 12 games for the Predators, including points (1g-4a) in each of his first five NHL contests, and a three-point performance (1g-2a) in the team’s 2013-14 finale at Minnesota.

Moser has been a mainstay on Swiss national teams the last handful of years, most recently appearing in the 2014 Olympics. He has also participated in the past three World Championships – earning a silver medal in 2013 – in addition to playing in international tournaments at both the world junior (2009) and under-18 (2007) levels.

The Bern, Switzerland native played his first six NHL contests with the Predators in February and March, recording a goal and an assist, in addition to amassing 26 points (8g-18a) in 48 games with the Admirals.
