As one can see looking at his stats from Huddinge he did a great job for them scoring 2 goals and 4 assist in 12 games as a defenseman. He´s been up with the big team now for 3 games playing center on the 4th line, lately with the talented Nicklas Bergfors and Dragan Umicevic. I´ve only seen him in one of those games, unfortunately he did look kind of lost on the ice and was clearly the weakest link on that line.
Södertälje have two americans, Chris & Peter Ferraro, who have been healthy scratches the last couple of games and they have most likely played their last game with this team. Södertälje have signed Olli Jokinen and Mikael Samuelsson but they won´t be eligible to play until November 18 so expect Jonathan Ericsson to play the nearest games anyway, as a centerforward. If they reach a solution with the twins I (hope) could imagine they sign yet another forward, a superstar from the NHL that is. Making life even tougher for the young kids on this team...
It´s highly unlikely that Jonathan grabs a spot as a defenseman on this team right now, especially with Nicklas Grossman playing so great. Peter Popovic is also close to making a comeback from his stomach problems so there isn´t really any room for Jonathan except on the 4th line.
