The oldest Swede the Central scouting has ranked this year is Janmark-NylÚn(Dec -92).
yeah, it appears to be a little known rule/clause for Euro players(at least under old CBA). Another player drafted in same situation as Nygren was Henrik Tommernes (Aug. 28th 1990) drafted in 2011 by Canucks. What is still unclear is what happens to late b-day Euro players like Fantenberg, does he still get 4 years of eligibility or only 3....?
