Reported this morning by his agent that he has no intention of playing junior.

For a kid playing pro for two seasons and making pro money, becoming a Canadian jnr teams slave for a year or more probably sounds like hell.

I think that's fine for this season, but I think if he doesn't make the big team next fall, he'd be better off learning the smaller ice as a Marlie.

Leafs Blueprint: Entry Draft 2017, Pick #17

He's a leftie, with a right handed shot.

Handedness in hockey is pretty weird, and is probably a combination of hand, foot, and eye dominance, combined with when you picked up the game, and how you were taught. Canadian and European youth coaches apparently teach grabbing the top of the stick with your dominant hand for strength on the pull back and during one-handed usage.

I'm right handed for just about everything -- hockey (learned off a flat blade), golf, baseball, curling, sweeping, eating, writing, archery, soccer -- except for squeezing toothpaste.

I know lots of people who write with their right hand but shoot left. I have no idea why. My strong arm is on the bottom of the stick but lots of left shooters prefer their strong arm on the top. I don't really get it.

I'm right-handed and shoot left. Holding the stick the other way feels so totally bizarre to me.

My brother is a righty for everything, except for eating.
My cousin is a righty but shoots and swings left.
My friend is left handed but shoots and swings right.
Another friend is a forced righty for writing and eating, but swings right and shoots left.

It's weird.

Is that a suburb of Chernobyl?

FWIW I'm RH but shoot pool and AK47s left handed.

J/k about that last bit. I voted HRC!!

A young lad I coached in cricket a couple of years ago there threw left but bowled (basically pitched to steal the baseball term) right. I've never figured the logic or biomechanics of that out.

Cool, we could use him. Hope he's decent.

Kevin McGran's article had a little tidbit about where Liljegren might be playing next season:

Quote
“But one more year to develop. Where that will be, I’m not sure. But one more year before the NHL.”

The Niagara Ice Dogs own Liljegren’s major junior rights, but his agent has already said he won’t play there. It sounds like he’ll play in Europe, specifically Sweden, where he has one more year left on his contract with Rogle BK, but sometimes other arrangements can be made.

“He has a valid contract for one more year in the SHL (Swedish Hockey League),” said Liljegren’s agent, Peter Wallen. “The Leafs have not offered him a contract. I think they want to see what he’s like in development camp and go from there.

“If they like what they see, maybe they will make an offer.”

For Liljegren to play somewhere other than Rogle this season, the Leafs would have to secure his release through the agreements the NHL has with the Swedish federation and the International Ice Hockey Federation.

https://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/2017/07/08/leafs-top-pick-timothy-liljegren-makes-the-first-cut.html

Right when he was drafted he repeated the same line over and over again but it was slightly different, saying that he would need one more year specifically in Sweden before trying to make the NHL. That sounded like a prepared line that he was using so the change here might be noteworthy. Anyway, it's July 11th so sue me.
