Thanks for that, quentez. I was hoping Friberg would put up better numbers in the Elitserien this season, but given it is the highest league in Sweden and he's only 20 I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. He's already proven he can dominate when playing amongst his age group, and puts up big numbers in Division 1 (supposedly 3rd best Swedish league, but I'm pretty sure there's a significant drop off after Elitserien and the Allsvenskan leagues.) He's small and fast with a good shot and a release that's... unique. It's quick, but also tricky for goalies to pick up sometimes. Also what I find interesting is, rather than finding the open ice, it seems to come to him. At least, that's what I saw after watching him very closely in last years WJC. Small sample I know but overall I think his game is better suited for NA ice, is he coming over next season? It would be really interesting to see what he can do in the AHL. I'd love to get the chance to watch the kid play more.
