Glad the Hogs signed him though.
Wasn't offered a new contract by Frölunda, don't think any other SEL teams were willing to take a shot at him so it was either AHL or Allsvenskan (Swe-2). My guess.

I really like Svedberg and did not appreciate the decision not to extend him. He showed that some flashes of brilliance last year and adapted nice from junior to senior hockey. This year he never really got a chance and was mostly used on the PK when other defencemen were penalized.

I hope he does well in the AHL, and I think his playing style suits smaller rinks much better.
