Heard this was coming to closure a couple days ago but did not think it was of great interest.
Michael Nylander (remember him?) is going to start to play with Södertälje for SSK in The second tier Swedish league "Allsvenskan". What is interesting to note is that he will be joined by his son William Nylander on the men´s league team, perhaps the most talented Swede at 16 years of age since Peter Forsberg. Means that William will lose his college eligibility, something he previously wanted to retain. Expect him to be Top 5 in the draft in 2 years.
A bird said to me that if these two players signed, then the NHL would resume and play...because Matt Read and Cam Fowler would then almost certainly also be leaving the squad. NHLers Carl Hagelin, Jonathan Eriksson and Niklas Grossman have all also played for SSK this year...
