Näslund will not have it easy to make the team IMO. He was mediocre at best in the U18 WJC (from those second-hand reports I have received . And him being far from a key-player on the U18-team one season to being a regular on the U20-team 6-7 months later is a huge step.

Not saying that he can't do it. I have liked what I have seen of him in the offensive zone and given the right amount of ice-time and offensive production he has a shot. Västerås however will be icing a rather competitive team next season and I would personally be surprised if he plays on the top two lines - thus limited chance of making the WJC-squad.

Hope he proves me wrong, and if so.. I'll add him this fall
