Lars Johnsson

How is Lars Johnsson doing these days? What's his status and is he on his way to America next season? I know that when Morrisonn was traded people were saying Johnsson would be better than him anyway, it's been a while since he's been drafted, anything wrong?

this from Kirk NEHJ :


Lars Jonsson, a 2000 first-rounder, will likely come over from Sweden, and while the skilled offensive blueliner is probably a longshot to make the B’s out of camp, he could definitely become a mainstay in Providence next season. With a potential lockout and lengthy work stoppage looming, he could take a similar developmental path as Gonchar, who spent the lockout in 1994-95 playing for Washington’s Portland Pirates farm club, playing well enough to earn a call-up when NHL play resumed and becoming one of the league’s top young scoring defensemen.

Jonsson's development has been slowed because he hasn't had many good roles, coaches or teams thus far in the Swedish leagues.

A month ago he signed on to play a season with Timra, an upper end team in the SEL. He will be counted on to be the team's primary two-way player and powerplay QB - a key role. The Bruins supposedly encouraged the move, probably believing he still is not far enough along to pay in the pro leagues - or possibly that the money may not be well spent on bringing him over at this point.

Either way, he is at least another year from playing in North America, and probably 2 seasons or more from being with the Bruins, if he makes it at all. Next season should be defining, and should say a lot about where he's headed...

I'll still take a chance on a 24 year old Lars Jonsson. With hockey probably not going to happen this season, it should be a good role for Lars in the SEL....

In the THN Draft Preview they say the Bruins are having trouble signing there 1st round pick, 7th overall left-winger Lars Jonsson.

I guess if Lars eventually gets things together in Sweden, he could be the next Marek Zidlicky. Coming over late and become an impact player.
