Stockholm and Helsinki are hosting the world hockey championships. Sweden is one of the favourites, together with Finland, Canada, and the United States. In addition to great hockey, the event has had its fair share of controversy, after there were so many empty seats for the opener between Norway and Sweden last Thursday.

"It wasn't the people's fault, it cost too much for tickets," says Magnus Arvedsson, former NHL player and Swedish Radio hockey expert. "It's a big minus for the organizers of the world championships here."

But he says the fans are coming back now that the organizers lowered the prices. And he is excited.

Arvedsson speaks to Radio Sweden about the highlights and makes some predictions about who will win.
