He left North America to work with this guy.


Swedens best goalie coach.

Both plays/played for Brynäs, both had Pekka as goalie coach so obviously their styles are very similar. Markström is, as far as i can tell, the better prospect but not by much.

Alcén must be one the absolutely best goalie coaches of today. His track record the last couple of years are amazing: Jacob Markström, Eddie Läck, Anders Lindbäck, Joakim Eriksson. Recently also SEL-winning goalie Niklas Svedberg and Oscar Dansk of course.
