i think it is unheard of for a 20 year old SEL prospect to do this
Yup, never been done. He was also basically NHL ready this year and didn't get a chance to try out, if the Sens had room, this season would have never happened for Rundblad. Chances are this is just an indication that Forsberg wasn't off base when he said Rundblad could be competing for ice time with Karlsson and Rundblad back in November. And really, when in the couple years we've known Anders Forsberg has he been proven to be wrong.

Like I've said, expect a transition, expect some growing pains in the defensive zone....but he's probably got he skills and the upside in skill to be an impact offensive player...just has to to learn it. Could take weeks...could take half a year, or longer.
