having said that, i fully expect us to draft one of these 3 guys this year.

magnus hellberg

samu perhonen

lars volden

Volden is good, he probably would have minded the net for Norway in this WC, but got injured.. Good for Haugen thou who just got signed by Minsk in KHL. But watch out for Steffen Søberg he was outastanding in wjc this year over 93%. i belive he faced over 50 shoots in 5 stright games for a Norway team who got relegated. A bit smaller than Volden, but big enough to make an impression on some scouts, this is from a
Q and A with International Scouting Services Head Scout Ross MacLean.
You are currently over at the U18’s in Germany, who has impressed you the most thus far?

Ross: This is such a great tournament because there is always a couple guys who either have something to prove or who come out of nowhere and launch themselves up the draft boards. Sweden’s Mika Zibanejad has been excellent so far, and looks like he could justifiably be a top 10 pick now. Norway has been surprisingly compeitive and that is 99% due to the play of their goaltender, Steffen Soberg, who has been without a doubt the most impressive goaltender in the tournament so far. One of Norway’s best forwards just happens to be his younger brother, Markus, who is the second youngest player in the tournament. It’s always good see the development of those nations.

The hockey news toplist also like Søberg:

.. Volden and Søberg is from the same club in norway, even Haugen is from the same little place, Manglerud a suburb of Oslo.
