In the games I've seen so far, he has made progress defensively, but he is still very raw.

A few stats:
1st in the league in Power Play Goals (3 goals)
1st in Goals by defensemen (4 goals)
4th in Points by defensemen (6 points)
4th in Shots by defensemen
8th in the league in goals

However, his offensive game has never been the questionmark, so maybe these stats are even more important:

Magnus Nygren 2011-2012:
14:47 min/game
-10 (worst in his team)

Magnus Nygren 2012-2013:
21:22 min/game
+/-0
That's a pretty good improvement in only a few games.

Guy could definitely be our main PP specialist!

With all of our new Swede prospects, which one is your favourite ? Must be Nygren

Vail has been impressive
