I believe it was Christer Rockstrom over in Sweden who found him playing in the junior league over there. He has always been a speed demon and they must have liked the fact that he had already decided to go play at Michigan (considering a lot of Europeans don't choose that route) and they just allowed him to develop.

They wanted to sign him after his Junior season but he decided to return for his senior season. He dominated. This is why I normally get a little defensive of people trying to rush certain prospects. Let them dominate their level of play and then let them take it 1 step at a time. He played well in Hartford for 20 games and got his shot.
