Fransson is healthy now, and has been all regular season. In the first playoff game (after less than a minute!) he was hit by former Boston player Peter Nordstr÷m and suffered a concussion, and missed four games. He played in the fifth game but it became the last of the season as Luleň was eliminated.

He is now currently playing with Swedens National Team on the preliminary roster for the World Champs, and that's very impresse for a player of his age. He won't make the final roster, but he has deserved this chance, and it gives him a lot of experience. He has been really good this season, maybe Luleň's best defensemen. Due to his size he is a NHLer IMO.
