Agreed, Åberg had a tough year last season trying unsuccessfully to bring Djurgardens back to the SEL after being relegated the year prior. This season he has moved onto Farjestad in the Swedish Elite League where through the first ten games of the season he is tied for the team scoring lead with six points (4 goals, 2 assists). While he is signed through the 2014-15 season in Sweden, the Predators can still sign Åberg this summer through the terms of the transfer agreement with the IIHF.

Åberg and fellow Preds prospect Max Görtz will be playing in the AHL All-Star Game this season with Farjestad representing the AHL All-Stars opponent.
