I believe Collberg mentioned it after getting drafted and said he would go anywhere the team wants him to go. But that he was certainly headed in Sweden this year.

It wouldn't be hard for the Habs to convince a good organization in the CHL or even better, in the 'Q to keep him closer, to draft Collberg in the Import Draft.
Collberg would have no worries to end up in a CHL team, but I highly doubt it's the Habs plan. I really think that until he has a real shot at the NHL, he'll stay in Sweden. Probably still needs 2-3 years in Sweden before breaking an NHL roster. He's still only 18 so that makes him 20 or 21 which is still really young to start a professional career. The year they'll feel he can be good call up, he'll play in the AHL. The SEL has a much higher tempo than AHL and I prefer that he plays with Frolunda.
