Canucks interested in Swedish D Sebastian Erixon

According to this Swedish website, the Canucks are interested in 21 year-old defenseman Sebastian Erixon, who plays for Timra in the Elitserien.

Google translation:
Timrċ team back is hot on the market and now the possibility of a contract with the NHL team Vancouver arise.
Swedish team has a great interest in Timra hill.
- It is true that there is an interest, confirming the Vancouver scouting in Sweden, Lars Lindgren, to Dagbladet.
Lars Lindgren says that there is a chance that Vancouver will offer Sebastian Erixon, a contract proposal
Here are his stats and a brief scouting report:

Erixon is a strong-skating two-way defenseman with very good hockey sense. Not a big player, but he compensates this with his smartness and good positioning. He plays a fairly safe game defensively and can contribute offensively with good passes and a decent shot. Puck handling is good and added strength is the key for him to take his game to another level. Although he rarely gets caught out of position, more muscles will be needed once he on regular basis will be forced to handle big and strong forwards in the top league.
