Is he legit, or were his numbers inflated by playing against younger players? Can anyone give me a scouting report - strengths, weaknesses, style of game played, faceoff skills, skating, etc.?

Any possibility he crosses over to play major junior in North American next year?

Seems like he'd be worth the investment of a mid-round pick by a team like St. Louis, who scout Sweden very heavily and who can afford to let him stay in Sweden for another year or two to develop, if he decides that's what he wants to do.
Well, he signed a 1yr extension with AIK so he will play in SEL or loaned to Allsvenskan next season.
