Thanks Shinkdew. Henrik Lundqvist has the release on team Sweden's roster for the WJC which included Robin Figren and confirmed by Edmonton Sun here.

Edmonton Journal: Cam Tait has a brief update on Figren's wrist injury.

Team Canada: Announced a thirty seven man roster on December 2ND that may include later additions but no Islander prospect was on that list.
