His team will likely be one of the better ones in the league, which I think can really help a young player.
On the other hand, playing against tougher competition is usually considered better, so it could go either way. Might not even make a difference at all
The biggest difference between SEL and Hockeyallsvenskan apart from the overall skill, is the type of hockey. While SEL is alot about defense and structure, Hockeyallsvenskan is alot more about speed and offense.
Åberg will most likely see first line minutes, together with one of Swedens best playmakers, giving him the perfect enviroment to develop his game.
Fun fact, Åberg will play with the guy who formed a fearsome duo with Hörnqvist. (
