Today is his 22nd birthday so still very young and it wouldnt hurt him to spend another season over there prior to coming to NA, imo.
The article says that Ridderwall's contract with Djurgarden runs out after this season and that he's one of the candidates to take over the reigns for Timra, who would like to retain a goalie by the name of Lindback. The tone in this article says Lindback is highly sought after.
He's a Nashville draftee.
There's nothing special about Ridderwall mentioned in the article.
Timra is the club Nielsen spent three seasons with.
By the by, Ridderwall started off this season as the number and was then EN FUEGO for the first 5 or 6 games he played in.
He has however really come down to earth in the past two months and is once again the designated back-up to Wesslau, who has stats ranking him amongst the top 3 in the league. Wesslau is just a year or two older.
Ridderwall would be well-served going somewhere where he can be seen as the number 1 - a job often GIVEN to goalies in the SEL because every time one becomes good, they're either brought over to North America or head to the highest bidder, creating openings on a number of teams for younger goalies to get their shot at a starting job.
