Video: Teams Sweden Captain Throws His Silver Medal Into The Crowd


After the gold medal game loss to Team Canada, Team Sweden Captain, Lias Andersson, throws his silver medal into the crowd.

Hockey players face devastating disappoint at different times in their career, but to the best of my knowledge this is a first at a IIHF tournament.




Andersson, a 1st round draft pick of the New York Rangers, was absolutely crushed as he was left in tears after the loss.

I am sure the kid must have immediately regretted this, however, this is the not what hockey or sportsmanship is all about.

It was reported that the medal was returned to the young man. Which we hope is some what of a happy ending to the story.

Unfortunately, Andersson will always be "That Guy"
