Was just looking through some new articles on HF, and look who they just mentioned:
Anton Rodin, LW – Chicago Wolves (AHL)
Drafted by the Vancouver Canucks, 2nd round, 53rd overall, 2009
Now in his second season of North American pro hockey, Anton Rodin has yet to make much of an impact in the offensive end for the Chicago Wolves. Success at Sweden's junior level and on the international stage had Rodin pegged as a potential top-six winger to complement the Canucks' depth down the middle.
The 21-year-old Swede has yet to even live up to those expectations in the AHL, where he is currently skating in a top-nine role for the Wolves but making little progress on the score sheet. After 10 goals, 27 points in 62 games as an AHL rookie, Rodin has yet to put the puck in the net through his first 11 games of 2012-13. He has a pair of assists so far, but has not brought a consistent effort to get pucks on net or create many scoring chances. His reliable play in the defensive end has kept him from becoming a liability, but it is not the start expected of Rodin now that he has a year of AHL experience under his belt.
