All of those players, excluding Lindholm, are 1 year older than him. For U19 players, he was 2th/46th.

To give you an idea of how hard it is to play that league as 18, only 14 18 years old played at least 1 game and only 4 more than 10 this year.

For allvenskan, since he played less game, we'll use ppg. He was 24th in the u24 group, 8th/95 in the u20 and 5/52 in the U19. Most of the guys on top of him are also highly touted prospects/players such as Landeskog, Forsberg, Burakowsky, De la Rose, Aberg, Wennberg.

This is why I am excited about him, even if I just have the posters here, a couple read here and there and boxscore scouting as an evaluation.
Lindholm is also not much younger than him, being a late birthday.
