Actually, Grossman has been great in the SEL this season. Södertälje has plenty of defensemen which has forced Grossman to see limited ice time at times, but I would consider him a candidate for the rookie of the year award in the SEL, especially if he keeps it up.
As for his offensive game, it has improved significantly which I recently noticed watching him play in an U20 tournament (vs Finland, Russia, Czech Rep). Grossman received plenty of time on the pp and looked good actually, although Johan Fransson was obviously the one that shined
Since being drafted Grossman has become a favorite of mine having seen him play closely, numerous of times after being drafted. I really like his physical game, his excellent leadership skills and his stability.
