As Jevo writes; he has fantastic instincs. He simply knows where to be in the offensive zone and has scored many goals on that account. Actually he was tied for 2nd most goals in the regular season on his team. Of course his good season can also be attributed his line mates. Most of the season he played on the second line together with his brother Patrick and 1993 prospect Tomas Spelling. But as his stats shows, it was justified he played there.
He has just won Danish League Rookie of the Year award like – among others - Peter Regin, Frans Nielsen and Nicklas Jensen has done before him.
In the Danish Cup final (that Herning won 3-1) he made two goles and was elected MVP (pokal-fighter).
