Not sure if this is posted anywhere else, but pretty good article. Maybe a rare diamond-in-the-rough find?

Nice article Bonsixx, thanks…looks like we may have found a gem there. Would be nice to have some more of these kind of articles about our prospects.

14G, 22PTS in just 32 games so far in SEL this season is pretty impressive considering that he celebrated his 19th birthfay in November (meaning he started the season as 18 years old).
3G, 6PTS in 6 games at WJHC is not shabby stat either
If he could only grew 1 or 2 incehs (he is listed 5.9)

Outscoring his teammate Alexander Wennberg who was drafted 14th overall last year.  A couple months younger than him too.

Hey Stebro,

I did some looking around and while he seems to be a rare breed in the SEL, this player caught my attention.

http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=27484

Is he being targeted off season/do you think he can play a North American game?

Another Swede looks like he'll be coming over to NA next season.  Tom Nilsson, Leafs' 4th round pick in 2011:

Leafs scout Thommie Bergman says to GT(newspaper) that Leafs prospect Tom Nilsson will play in NA next season(Leafs/Marlies).

As bleak as things look today, we are stocking  up a pretty good set off defenseman, MacWilliam, Percy, Finn, Granberg, Knodel, and now this kid. What happened to Victor Loov?  He was said to be tough as nails.  And Holzer must be getting better as well?

This guy is a forward not a D-man, but otherwise I agree.

The prospect pool looks promising in terms of serviceable D-men.

What happened to Victor Loov?

According to Swedish reports he signed his ELC with the Leafs yesterday. He'll come over to North American next season and likely play with the Marlies.

Like you said, there's a bunch of young defencemen signed now: MacWilliam, Percy, Finn, Granberg, Nilson, Knodel, Loov. Plus Holzer and Kevin Marshall are both signed to contracts and they're key players on the Marlies. Wonder how they're going to manage that.
