just bigger role/icetime or has his game already reached a different level?

considering he already played 4 allsvenskan games last year, is he expected to be called up soon to the senior team?
Simon Karlsson plays for Malmö in SEL-2 The team is making a great push to finally get back to SEL and have aquired tons of high profile players in the offseason (aswell as during the season). The chances for juniors to make the team and get good icetime (like for the Westerholm twins) is really slim. They are not in a rebuilding mode, and not likely to have patience with unpolished juniors.

Since the team has loads of injuries he might be the 7th d-man in next game.

It's a shame though, the team had a good promising group of juniors where a lot of the players have chosen to go elsewhere (CHL, other swedish teams) since the opportunities for youngsters are few and far between in Malmö.
