Calle Andersson will not play for Sweden in the WJC's. He can still play next year, and it would have been a bit of a long shot had he made it.

I've seen some more of him in the SEL. He is a big kid who is a well rounded and smart defensemen. Its tough to get a read of him since he is a young 18 y/o, who isn't super early developed, who is playing in a 2nd pairing, no PP/PK, role in the SEL. Alot of the shifts he takes more or less about just doing his job.

He definitely look like a decent prospect. He is listed at 6'2, but when you see him you wonder if he won't end up as a 6'3-3.5... He is well rounded, but what you miss in him is of course some explosiveness and intensity. He is a RH shot who seems set on developing into a decent PPQB. I don't notice any real weakness in him defensively. Its more like the opposite. He takes the body and stands up for himself.

It will definitely be interesting to following him in the coming years. He could explode in his development in the near future when he fills out and becomes more mature physically, or he could of course just become a very decent SEL/AHL D. Its still very hard to even tell what type of D he will become.
