Interesting quotes about Nygren from the prospects board:

He plays 22 minutes per game and some PK too, so yeah. A big step forward I'd say. I think he at least deserves an ELC.
Nygren has taken a massive step defensively. He has put on 6-8(can't remember exactly) kilos this summer and has worked alot on all aspects of his defensive play. He even did an open ice hit in the first games of the season, which surprised everyone lol.
He's not as lost in the own half of the rink anymore.

Very big step this year.
Very good to hear.

I don't think there's anything wrong with his work ethic though. That speed could turn him into a player someday. A loan to an Allsvenskan team would be better for him than junior hockey imo.
It could very well be that he's bored of/overconfident about junior hockey right now.
