I basically only keep track of the swedish juniors.
Former 1st overall pick in the WHL draft. Went to the PG Cougars, a place that's famous for not being good in the standings or being great at developing NHL talent in recent years.

Played there for a year and a half until this season decided not to return to the team after Christmas break. He basically said that they needed to trade him or that he wouldn't come back.

Well, the Cougars didn't trade him. And he's been playing in the SJHL, which is a big notch below the WHL. Either way, the league is still a good place for some prospects to develop and I still think he'll get drafted..it just won't be as high as some might have though 1-3 years ago. He used to be talked about as a potential top 10 pick in the draft.

I still like his talent level, even though he's pretty weak and doesn't have a great work ethic on the ice.
