NOTE TO MEDIA: For interview requests, get them to Team Media Relations Manager André Brin in advance to coordinate without the team’s media obligations on-site as well the team’s schedule. Please take note of the time difference as you make your requests. Sweden is six hours ahead of Eastern Time, i.e. if it is 12:00 p.m. ET, it is 6:00 p.m. in Sweden.  Media requests on-site will be given priority. Depending on times, live interviews may be difficult to coordinate around the team’s schedule and the time difference.
