If you've ever wanted to own a silver medal, now may be time to sign up for a certain auction website.

Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson and his Swedish teammates lost the Olympic men's hockey gold medal game 3-0 to Canada on Sunday, and Karlsson said he isn't planning on keeping his silver medal.

When asked what the medal means to him, he replied:

"You will see when I put it out on eBay.”

Karlsson was named the Olympic tournament's top defenseman and tied for the overall points lead with eight. His four goals were tied for the lead among defensemen.

The 23-year-old said Sweden's showing in Sochi "will be something to look back on with pride one day," but he's not quite there yet, via the Olympic News Service.
