First of all I was kinda surprised he was given a spot on the men's team. Almtuna was sorta planning it I believe, but I don't think it would've been a guarantee. Now he's taking a regular shift(as a D) it seems, even playing powerplay. On a better team. Surprising because when he came up with Almtuna last year he was playing forward on the 4th line. And it looks like he's really grown a lot, listed as 6'2 and 202lbs now. I find him intriguing.
On defense he wasnt very good against Oskarshamn, look shaky at times, didnt make the plays in SSK own end well enough. Looks a bit better on the PP. Like many young defenders these days, offense look better than defense right now, at least in that particular game. SSK will have Sonntag back soon and have just gotten another D from the AHL as well. Chances are that Press will lose some playing time.
