Since SEL is a very good league it will certainly be a measurement of how far he can go. and what kind of player he turns into when he matures! He certainly will learn a lot of defensive skills since SEL was fairly lowscoring last season (also stacked with lots of promising goalies). The Danish league is not exactly known for its quality defence (not so surprising when you have many teenage defenders), but it makes it great for offensive players to good lots of shots in matches and get confidence!
