Holmqvist wasn't very good in camp, OK but not really trying to get on the team. Seems he was a bit overwhelmed with the move and being separated from his family, etc. We thought at most he might be the 7th man here to start the season, but some AHL time should be good for him. The tools are there, he just needs to get comfortable.
One thing he definitely needs to do is bulk up, he's a stringbean!
