In yesterday’s game against Latvia, Anna Wijk reached a milestone: she scored her 74th WFC point and became all-time WFC top point scorer.

We take a closer look at her 77 points!

Wijk has scored her points in 33 games in total, starting in 2009. With 20+57 in total, it’s clear she’s more a passer than a shooter.

2009: 1+7 points

In Anna Wijk’s WFC debut game in 2009 – she was 18 at that time – Wijk scored one assist in the 17-3 won game against Norway. What followed were 0+4 points against the USA, but zero in the two games after, against the Czech Republic (group stage) and Latvia (quarterfinal).

In the semifinal against arch-rival Finland, Sweden scored ten times and won the game 10-2, with two points for Anna Wijk (1+1). In the last game of the tournament, Wijk won her first gold medal after Switzerland was beaten 2-6. Her personal score in that game was 0+1.
