WJC Discussion- Wikstrand Watch!
 
Surprised there is no thread aside from the pool one about the WJC.

Only 1 sens prospect and that's 7th rounder Dman for Sweden, should be getting top 4 minutes and power play time.

Canada loses pre touring game to Finland 3-2

Sweden vs USA on TSN at 1230 starting right now.

Team Canada can fudge themselves.

Icelevel 12-20-2012 11:45 AM

1-0 swe

starling 12-20-2012 11:51 AM

What's his number?

Icelevel 12-20-2012 11:55 AM

Wearing #9?

Benny FTW 12-20-2012 11:58 AM

Only pic i could find of him in a Swedish uniform has him wearing #9

Edit: Confirmed #9

Pretty impressed with what I've seen from Wikstrand thus far.

Good skater with smooth pivots and appears very confident with the puck. Crisp pass and has hit guys in full stride. Has used his body to separate players from the puck. Playing with confidence.

edit: some heady fakes on the blue line on the PP.

Looks like he tries his best to be OEL. First impression is I really can't complain about his effort to do so.

Sweden didn't use Hampus Lindholm on the PP in practices. Looks like Vikstrand will be their man on special teams.
Nice.

General Granny* 12-20-2012 12:18 PM

Its only 1 period but he looks really really good, great patience, good hands, great reach with his size and QBs a power play nicely, just seems to always make the perfect play and reliable in his own net. That last play in the PK where he just uses his reach to get the puck out of the boards.

starling 12-20-2012 12:18 PM

So is he wearing #9? I don't have headphones at work.

Yes.

Hale The Villain 12-20-2012 12:48 PM

Moves the puck very smartly, liking what I'm seeing

Good to see him playing PK on top of running Sweden's powerplay.

Dionysus 12-20-2012 12:54 PM

Nice little sequence on the pk in the offensive zone.

General Granny* 12-20-2012 01:00 PM

Should have got an assist on that Rackell goal.

General Granny* 12-20-2012 01:27 PM

Easily Sweden's best dman this game.

Philadelphia Collins 12-20-2012 01:32 PM

Surprised he doesn't have that many assists back in the SEL2, almost all of his shots are on net with a rebound

Minister of Offence 12-20-2012 01:33 PM

I think he's put on full display this game why he's doing what he's doing in the Allsvenskan so far. Certainly making a case early on that he's no fluke.

Plays a slick game.

Just know that this observation carries more weight than a hockeydb hit.

SenzZen 12-20-2012 01:56 PM

That was ripped. 3-2 US in OT

Wikstrand looked good in the little I saw of this game.

Benny FTW 12-20-2012 01:59 PM

Wikstrand was really impressive. Wow.

Minister of Offence 12-20-2012 02:02 PM

Most convenient style comparison is easily OEL for me. No holes in his game on this night really.

OMadahey 12-20-2012 02:05 PM

Hey quick question. If I only have basic cable nd sadly don't get tsn. What are other ways to watch the world juniors? Do they stream it?

Ahh, the signature Karlsson shot.

Nice to see another Swedish defenseman prospect of ours know how to do it.

That's so ironic considering that the Sens have a Top-3 prospects pool

:huh:

Our top 5 prospects are over 20 :) plus no luck with injuries, lockout and suspensions this year.

Noesen was a lock for the top 6
Zibby as well
Puempel got injured right before camp, he would have got the spot over Drouin.
Ceci not invited for some reason
