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.
I diden't look much of the juniors last year so i can't really say that much about Mattias, but as you said his numbers are impressive and he played the first line in AIK juniors. I saw him in some games at the real squad, but he diden't get much playtime.
But i would not say that it would be a bad choice for a later pick. I think he will impress me this year, of the little i saw last season i was happy. He seems to be willing to give a 110% and really get in the mess around the corners. Depends also if he will be put as a center or winger i guess.
