Rated as the no.3-6 top Euro Goalie Prospects, Lundqvist played at the Swedish Elite Level Juniors at Våstra Frolunda. He joins Johan`s Holmqvist and Asplund as Swedish Ranger draftees and may yet just prove to be the best pick of the entire Ranger draft. Another prospect find of scout Christer Rockstrom. Watch out for him…
I think he was a bit of an unknown quantity. I'm sure RB can turn up better info
