Both players will play in the j-18 league even though they are 14 years old.

The lateborn 1998 Adam Thilander, also had a good tournament production wise and will play in the j-18 league this year. He very recently turned 13 and isn't eligble until 2017 (makes you feel old)

Philip Magnusson from Rögle is probably one of the best forwards in the 1997 agegroup, he had a decent tournament (8games, 8 points) and will play for Rögles j-18 team this year.

There are also a lot of late born 1996 players from Sweden that look promising so far.

Most notable 1996 born, eligible for the 2015 draft:

Fredrik Forsberg, C. Filip Forsbergs little brother. Just as talented but plays center.
Dmytro Timashov, LW. Very very skilled with the puck. Don't know if he will play for Sweden though.
Petter Mäkitalo, LW. Hard working sniper.
Anton Karlsson, RW
Robin Kovacs, LW
Gustaf Franzén, RW
Erik Santesson, LW
Rasmus Andersson, D
