Alexander Wennberg: 2013 NHL Draft Player Profile #18
Alexander Wennberg has spent the season playing for Djurgården in the Swedish Allvenskan. Some think that the Allsvenskan is like the Swedish version of the AHL, this is not the case. With the way Sweden’s pro hockey leagues are set up, we need to remember that they are set up like European Football (Soccer) leagues. The Allsvenskan is basically the equivalent of the Italian Serie “B” to the Elite League’s Serie “A”, or like the Championship League instead of the Barclay’s Premier League. Wennberg is not stuck in the Allvenskan by any fault of his own, but rather by Djurgarden’s performance prior to him joining the team. He has been part of the Djurdarden developmental program and junior league teams for several years prior to joining the big club. Following the season, it was announced that Wennberg’s rights had been transferred to Frolunda in the Elitserien.
