If there is one thing that has become obvious in the last few years, it's that most Swedish hockey players hate playing in the AHL.

He'll be playing for Frölunda this season and there is a good chance that he'd be loaned back to the club rather than sent down to the Bulldogs if he fails to make the NHL team out of camp next season.

The important part is that he was drafted from a European club, not that he is European.

If you were drafted from outside the CHL, you can play in the AHL at 18, regardless of your nationality. If you were drafted from a CHL club you cannot play in the AHL for as long as you are junior eligible, regardless of your nationality.
