Edgars Klavins from Latvia have had a good season in Sweden,very likely not good enough to be considered for the draft, but still his stats look good for his age. It's hard to tell really how good 45 points in 32 games in SEL-4 is, noone has ever been drafted from that league. His also finished second in scoring in the u-18 league, but he is born 1993 which make it good, but not mindblowing.
Norbert Hari has from Hungary has put up 19 points in 22 games in u-18 league in Sweden, that's some seriously good stats for a guy born 1995. He is extremel˙ tiny right now, but what if he starts to grow?
Luis Joshua Gimenez-Madill is pehaps the next big NHL-star from spain? Who knows really, but at least he has produced some points as a 15-year old in the u-18 league in Sweden which should be considered good.
Well, well remember that it was here you heard about theese guys first
It's fun that there is some players from around europe that choses to develop in Sweden. The majority of the danes and norwegians that play in NHL, has played in SEL or the swedish junior leagues first, Kopitar also develop nicely here, so maybe swedish juniors could be seen as a alternative to CHL for some europeans.
