Blomstrand, Gaunce, and Kassian could all bring somewhat different strengths to a very imposing line several years down the road.
His team was demoted last season so they're in the Allsvenskan. They played their first game today and despite playing well the whole pre-season and getting on the scoresheet multiple times, Blomstrand was benched. Not sure why, a few people on Twitter that follow the team were surprised too.
