Ericsson won a gold medal with Tre Kronor at the 2013 World Championship. Ericsson broke a rib in a preliminary game against Norway, however he continued to play in the remaining six games of the tournament.
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.
Ericsson represented Sweden at the 2014 IIHF World Championship, where he recorded two goals in ten games, and won a bronze medal.
