Saw this on CBJProspects' twitter feed: Daniel Zaar loaned to BIK Karlskoga (Allsvenskan)

Zaar hadn't been getting much playing time for Rögle, who was promoted to the Elite League last season and are battling to stay in (Martin Gerber has playing very well for them)

I find it funny that the CBJ get bashed for their treatment of young players, when it's common in the Swedish leagues to use junior age players as reserves and have them as an extra forward who plays 2-3 minutes a game.

Rögle's U20 teams didn't make the top 10 teams, so they're playing the lower tier teams in the SuperElit and won their last game 11-1 with a lot of their top players sitting out (in Sweden, there's actually some concern about fairness.)

So it's good that Zaar will have a chance to get consistent ice time.

It sounds like Zaar could return for the relation/promotion tournment for the Elite League (bottom teams in the SEL, top teams in Allsvenskan), which could mean Rögle vs Karlskoga.
