Exactly, Jonasen hasn't played in the SEL, he's not the more polished player that many Swedes coming over are after playing several years in the Elite League. It was probably better to ease him into a situation where the players are a similar age to the players Jonasen has been playing with, rather than have him face older, stronger players, many of whom have been playing several years in the AHL.

I wouldn't be suprised if Rockstrom had a significant say in where he played this year either.
