The Ogden Mustangs are proud to announce that forward Emil Svartbro has been selected to compete for Team Estonia in the upcoming Men's Ice Hockey Olympic Qualification Round in February.

Svartbro will be representing Estonia for the first time at the Olympic level and fourth overall. He has been a member for the U20 teams since 2017-18 while scoring one goal and one assist in eight games. In January 2019, Estonia captured the gold medal in the IIHF Ice Hockey U20 World Championship Division II Group A tournament on home ice in Tallin, Estonia. The gold medal victory promoted Estonia to Division I Group B, where they would face teams such as Ukraine, Hungary, and France. In the gold medal-clinching game against Korea, Svartbro scored a massive goal for his country en route to a 7-2 victory.

Estonia will compete in Group J with Great Britain, Hungary, & Romania.  Svartbro will return to the Mustangs at the completion of the Olympic Qualifiers.
