6th d man lmao.

I imagine he is somewhere is the 2-3 range in TOI for the tournament on the SWE blueline.

He does not have a 'smaller' role... he has a different role.

Basically him and Arnesson are the only two guys who are good defensively (Norrell and Djoos are middling) so while all the Sweden D men can move the puck apart from Arnesson, not many are solid in their own zone, so a premium has been put on that, they are terrified of having guys like Bengtsson, Olofsson and Pettersson vs top competition.

on the 4 min pp he was out their to begin the period then didnt see the ice for the rest of the pk
