Jimmie's younger brother Jonathan is a defenseman who is currently playing for the Detroit Red Wings. The Ericsson brothers were set to play together professionally for the first time at the 2010 World Championships. Following Detroit's elimination in the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs, Jonathan joined Sweden's national team at the World Championships. The brothers were in the lineup together, however; Jimmie injured his knee on his first shift, and missed the rest of the tournament, so they were never on the ice together. The brothers played together for the first time at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, where they won the silver medal. Jimmie was the only non-NHL player on the team.[6]
