North Americans in sweden??
 
It is known of many studded swedes in the NHL making a name for themselves, best player at the moment Mr. Swede himself Peter Forsberg. What about those young North Americans trying to make names for themselves in Sweden? Anyone know the route one should take to try and make a team there? Or any European Country for that matter?

Another player agent?

There aren´t that many canadians or americans who makes the trip to Europe when they are young, but Justin Kelly is one player who made it in the swedish 2nd-league last year. To be honest, if they havent played major junior hockey or college they aren´t likely to receive a contract in "the SEL 2".

How about that Connor Dunlop kid who was trying out for Färjestad before they signed Mathias Johansson.. And there's a north american junior playing for DIF J20.

Dunlop was rejected by both Bofors and Mora... :p

This canadian boy Eric Kleine who plays for Djurgården, he doesn´t seem to receive a lot of ice-time thus far in J20.
