Possibility of Hardt in the NHL?

Nichlas Hardt is a hardworking and very aggressive player that has had an excellent year in the land of SISU (Goldhelmet for Jokerit in front of Teemu Pulkkinen or Jarkko Ruuto! that both has been drafted)
Why has he not been drafted or later called by an NHL or AHL club???
He was excellent at the WC 2010. Since NHL today is not totally blind to the existence of danish players, what could be the reason? His lack of size?
1.77 cm and 80 kg according to eliteprospects.com.
I could understand that he would prefer playing in Jokerit for an AHL club, but since all the danish forwards in NHL are highly regarded for their 2-way game (Nielsen, Hansen, Regin, Eller, Bødker) and generally hard work every shift, why no club has come forward. He is still young (1988), so that shouldn't be the obstacle.
