The organist from Landskrona?

From Elite Prospects:
A butterfly goaltender that saves right. Eriksson has very quick reflexes, moves well side-to-side and has also good hockey sense. Eriksson has very quick reflexes, moves well side-to-side and has also good hockey sense. Decent size and covers the net fairly well. Decent size and covers the net fairly well. Has the ability to virtually stand on his head and make those huge, game-winning saves. Has the ability to virtually stand on his head and make those huge, game-winning saves.

Also, the funny Swedish to English translation Google offers:
A butterflymålvakt picking with the right and is an athletic goalkeeper with a good grundskolning. Eriksson har snabba reflexer, är relativt storväxt och har förmågan att göra riktiga "idiotmatcher", där han tar precis allt. Eriksson has quick reflexes, are relatively tall and has the ability to make real "idiotmatcher", where he just takes it all.


"Idiotmatcher"=Niittymaki in Atlanta!

Sounds promising, taking the approach of drafting a couple goalies lower and giving them plenty of time to develop sounds good to me despite my protest at passing on McCollum who went to Ken "midas touch" Holland and them.

That pic is not our guy, our guy is the one in the white pads in this pick, he is a teammate of Markstrom's.

The fact that he just takes it all, when it comes to "idiotmatching", really says a lot about the kid's character, and where his head's at. He's not afraid to dumb his game down, and keep things simple, because he knows, in the end, all that really matters is that you just take it all, and win the Cup.

But seriously, it seems as if we took two backup goaltenders, who both have a lot of potential moving forward. Obviously, DeSerres being the one that would be looked to pan out more so, being a 3rd rounder. The Blue Jackets drafted Steve Mason in the 3rd round a few years ago, and he was a backup, who I believe had only played something like 16 games. That's worked out pretty well for them so far.

not that I would ever compare anyone to Henrik Lundqvist, but I they do have some similarities.

Henrik Lundqvist Goalie
Born Mar 2 1982 -- Are, Sweden
Height 6.01 -- Weight 187 -- Shoots L
Selected by New York Rangers round 7 #205 overall 2000 NHL Entry Draft

just sayin.

Absolutely, how many times does an NHL team acquire a backup or 1B guy and he turns out great? Junior and foreign pro leagues are even more likely to have goaltending caches because they don't have the financial pressure and are focused on developing guys across the lineup sheet.

If he puts together three years like Lundqvist had to Goteborg, I will buy you dinner at the Prime Rib and a massage at the Asian parlor of your choice just for making the comparison.

i saw the guy play today for rookie camp. he was the best skating goalie on the ice and he took up a lot of the net. only down side is he stays in the crease too much, which is typical of European goalies. once he starts to really challenge the shooter, his game will improve more.

Eriksson seems to be one of those goalkeepers who is absolutely fantastic in important games and play off games, but not exactly keeping his concentration up during the entire season in the less important games or how to say.

He's a bit unlucky to be in a club who had 3 goalkeepers (including himself) drafted last year, so obviously he's not the only gk prospect there, but I'm sure they have a smart plan for his development as well, just like they had with Markström and Lindbäck (the other gk prospects).

Markström (extreme talent) and Lindbäck (good talent and 2 years older) are ahead of Eriksson at the moment, but he's not very far behind and I expect him to be Sweden's #2 in next seasons WJC, but this season is too early for him.

I watch him every week so I'd could give reports if someone is interested.

Leading SEL right now with 93,97 and a 1,65 GAA with another shut-out today. Got a strong year going and has truned his game around 180 since last year. Was a huge critic againts him last year when he was all over the place, but could be a steal in later rounds if he keeps developing in same pace.
Im pretty sure he isnt. He is turning 22 in April, so he is eligible for a team to sign him though.

Any NHL team can sign Eriksson as a free agent. His signing rights are no longer Flyers property nor is he subject to the NHL Draft anymore.

I'm really not sure why the Flyers thought Hovinen, or even keeping Backlund, was a much better option than signing Sunshine.

Hovinen is a stud and has been playing very well, see http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=7472.

Eriksson turned it around after a rather disappointing effort last season.

Right now both look like potential NHL material. Hovinen might be closer to making the jump to NA though.

He is, but I'd still like to know why they signed him and let Ericsson go.
Hovinen's sv% hasn't improved, just his GAA.

Granted, they were a lot better than Ericsson's last year.
Oh well, it's probably a non-issue, I just prefer Ericsson because he's Swedish, I guess.
