I'd try Idoff if it's for a 7th. Another Swedish goalie we could sign is Joacim Eriksson from Skelleftea. 6'2"/196lbs. has a 1.58 GAA and a .936 SV% in 26 games. An ex Flyer draft pick who's rights were failed to be retained is an excellent option and is only 22 years old.
Niklas Bäckström is Finnish (the goalie). You can consider yourself extremely lucky that you did not do this in front of some my Finnish acquaintances - ie refer to a star Finnish NHL player as a.Swede. They go bananas then...
