If Avs could pass on a guy like Rutkowski, it's hard seeing a winger in SEL playing fourth line minutes without much of an offensive game would be offered an ELC. Especially with guys like Malone and Heard surely being ahead of him at this stage and how easy it's to fill that role with a cheap UFA.

I might add that I haven't watched a lot of SEL (not crazy about it to start with and my favorite team is in the tier below), so I have no idea how he's playing. SEL teams sometimes don't give junior players a decent chance. That's one of the reasons you see more and more swedes in junior hockey in Canada. Some teams are decent but Linköping is a team that doesn't have much of a junior tradition.
