Omark moves up to third in Worlds scoring
Six Oilers players and one Oilers prospect are suiting up for their respective countries at the IIHF World Championships in Switzerland from April 24 to May 10.

Linus Omark picked up a goal and an assist on Sunday to move into third place in scoring at the IIHF World Championships and help lead Sweden to a 4-1 win over Switzerland. He's also second in assists with seven - one behind Canada's Martin St. Louis.

Ales Hemsky had two assists while Ales Kotalik picked up a goal as the Czech Republic won both games this weekend - 8-0 over Slovakia Saturday and 3-0 over Belarus Sunday.

Denis Grebeshkov's Russia squad defeated Patrick O'Sullivan's Team USA club 4-1 on Saturday. Russia followed that up with a 6-1 win over Latvia Sunday.
