Allsvenskan is not a team but the name of the Swedish tier 2 league. The team he's been loaned to is Aspl÷ven, with which I'm not familiar but I'm pretty sure they're not among the top teams.

Regarding the level of play, Allsvenskan is probably the best tier 2 league in Europe, the top team there aren't far behind the bottom of the Eliteserien. It's not unusual to have players going straight from there to the NHL, Patrik Berglund and Oliver Ekman-Larsson being two recent examples. It's way better than the NLB.

I guess it's a good move for Kukan, he's going to play in a strong league and get more ice time than he would with Luleň.
