And that was just what he became, a core/key player for Modo who he captained his last season, and 2. to 3. d man for Färjestad averaging a TOI of 18:55
For Norway, he is closer to 30 min a game. He is alongside with Holøs, the most important d man and also the Captain for the last three or four years.
That's somewhat encouraging, but frankly I'll believe it when I see it.
