    Canucks to open camp in Sweden

     VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- The Vancouver Canucks will open training camp in Sweden next season as part of the NHL Challenge-Stockholm 2000 three-day, four-team tournament.
     
     The NHL, in coordination with the NHL Players Association and a number of Swedish partners, are keen on displaying the North American game overseas.
     
     "Our continued activity abroad has generated increased global interest in the game and has strengthened the unique bond that exists between hockey and the international community," said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.
     
     There are currently 40 Swedish players in the NHL, including Canucks Markus Naslund and Mattias Ohlund. As well, highly-touted Swedish twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin -- selected second and third overall in last summer's draft -- are expected to make their debut with the Canucks at training camp.
     
     Along with holding a six-day camp, the Canucks will play at least two games, including one against Swedish Hockey League's MoDo, with whom the Sedins currently play.
     
     This will be the Canucks' second trip overseas. They opened the 1997-98 season with two games against the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in Tokyo -- the first time NHL regular-season games were played outside North America.
