The next year, he was placed on the Swedish World Juniors team and led all goalies with a 94.6% save percentage and finished second with a 1.61 GAA. Those impressive stats let him to earn Best Player honours at the goaltender position in 2009; his team also took home the silver medal. He again represented Sweden at the WJCs in 2010 and couldn't quite match his previous year's performance as Sweden earned a bronze medal. Markström did post a respectable 92.72% save percentage and a 2.21 GAA, both good enough for second place amongst goalies in the prestigious tournament.
