well, olimb was eligible this year and so far i see no reason to expect him to be taken in next years draft.

nope, no new Swedes.
Björn Svensson will continue to play there though.. and I guess that Gustav Engman and Bobby Williams could stay as well.

I don't understand why. There ought to be more players in sweden willing to play in the best junior leagues in the world. :shakehead

First rounder might be a stretch but it is very early to tell really. I'd say there are probably around 4-5 Swedish forwards that are just as good or better than Madsen eligible for the draft.. but I don't see all of them going in the first round.

Still Madsen is definitely excellent prospect. Should be the highest drafted Dane.

I'm very curious to see whether Olimb will go the CHL and if so, what he'll end up doing. I know Kyle Woodlief from RedLine Report was very high on him and thought he was quite a super young player.

Sometimes you never know. Yannic Seidenberg of Germany dropped out of the 2003 draft although he was expected to be taken in a later round. He then went to the WHL where he put up 19-47-66 in 67 games and then 19 points in the post season, then he wasn't drafted this summer. I wonder what would happen if Olimb could have a season a little better than that???
:dunno:

Joakin Jensen, Manglerud

Does anyone have a scout report on him? What type of player is he?
