from what i recall he was a pretty big part of Farjestad team at 17, he dressed for 14 playoffs games as a 17 year old and played a big role in their shutdown role.

it was one of the things touted about him

If Elias plays a good amount of time at age 17 in the SEL it will help him, look at Johan Larsson as a 20 year old, two years after his draft he really took off in SEL, Elias doing it at 17 will cement him as one of the top picks in the draft.
