Opinion: Three years later, Sweden still talking trash about Rio Olympic win over U.S. women Their loss to Sweden in the quarterfinals of the 2016 Rio Olympics was the U.S. women's earliest exit at a major international tournament. It also was Sweden’s fourth win in nine games against the U.S., a stretch of “dominance” few other teams have managed against the three-time World Cup champions. So no, Sweden is not going to let that one go. The U.S. beat Sweden the next time the teams played, a friendly in Sweden in 2017. But its win over the United States in 2016 remains a point of pride for the Swedes ahead of Thursday night, a rallying cry for a game that is otherwise meaningless.

After considering a return to North America, former Buffalo Sabres forward Patrik Berglund will be staying in Sweden. He has signed a one-year contract with Djurgardens in the SHL.

Berglund, 31, famously walked away from more than $10M on his final contract with the Sabres in 2018 due to mental health issues, leaving the team suddenly. He had played just 23 games for Buffalo since being included in the return for Ryan O’Reilly and scored just four times during his time there. The three remaining seasons on his contract were terminated, and Berglund disappeared from the public eye for some time.

While he recently started exploring options to return, a year in Sweden to prove he is dedicated and productive again might have to be the first step. Once a consistent third-line center for the St. Louis Blues, Berglund is now several years removed from his last 20 goal season.
