OTTAWA - He's living the Swede life.

Fredrik Lindberg, the second for Swedish skip Niklas Edin, spent Christmas in Ottawa with his girlfriend Alison Kreviazuk, Rachel Homan's second. Like many non-Canadian teams, his rink spends plenty of time in Canada.

"We make six trips to Canada and spend anywhere from a week to three or four weeks at a time." Lindberg, 26, said.

The team plays in a cash event in Scotland this week, then jets back to Canada for the World Financial Group Continental Cup in Penticton, B.C., Jan. 10-13. How does he afford this?
