Bill Maltzter's daily blog.

This time it's about Haggs progress.

The more I hear about him, the more I get excited. Really, really nice pick in the second round I guess.
He has been pretty intense vs the Swiss so far, and the pre camp games. He just facewashed a Swiss guy and laid on a big hit earlier.

They are seemingly playing him as one of the go to guys vs the opposition better players and on the PK extensively.

But yeh, I have watched ~10 of Haggs games and Meltzer is pretty spot on. Though I think his improvement defensively is definitely clear since the start of the year, and you are seeing that in his WJC role.

He is the only >19 year old to play every SHL game this year.

And the only >20 D man to play every game.

Him, Lundberg, Djoos, Nillson, Bystrom and Pettersson are the only regular (20+/30+) D men below 20 years old in the SHL.
