One thing I noticed, isn't Granlund's first name Mikael rather than Mikeal?

It starts in 9 days. Pre-season still. I don't think there's highlights anywhere. I could be wrong though

Johan Larsson got 3 points (1+2) against Djurgården in the last pre-season game and have been rewarded with a senior-contract.

Yes, it's likely that he will indeed take a place in Brynäs SEL team. I have a season ticket to their games, can't wait to see him play in SEL

Was it completely unexpected for him to play in the senior league and he just played well enough to make it, or was it a situation where he was going to make the team as long as he wasn't a liability.

That would be nice, but Brynäs have so many prospects so it's almost impossible to remember. Järnkrok, Rödin, Silverberg, Wännström, Rensfeldt, Bertilsson, Ekholm etc... And of course Larsson.

Larsson and Rensfeldt were supposed to be with the SEL team during the pre-season and were expected to get games during the end of the season, like Calle Järnkrok did last season, but Larsson impressed and simply took the chance. Quite unexpected considering his presence in the team puts one or two a lot more established players on the bench. And for his own part, he'll own a lot more money with a SEL contract than a junior contract, even though he's obviously not a 'big earner' yet.

As for Rensfeldt, who also got a chance to impress, Brynäs allowed him to play a prospect tournament in North America so he seems to be out of the SEL equation, at the moment. Brynäs usually sack a couple of established players during the season, as they get outshined by prospects, so Larsson's role in the team is likely to get bigger and bigger.

Interview with Mikael Granlund

http://www.hifk.fi/uutiset/hifk_tvn_...ikael_granlund

-Excited for the new season, will be the first line center and playing with Ville Peltonen

-He's planning to play the whole season as a center, like he has done his whole life, with last season being an exception.

-He's happy he can play with Peltonen. He says it's easy playing with him. (I recall Peltonen being a two-way player, so MG can focus on offense without worrying too much about defending)

-He says he has gotten some strength, especially to the legs.

Here's a video about the interview
http://www.hifk.fi/hifk-tv/301

The season will start in 2 days.

i like the focus on offense! Kinda like how i wish Koivu was more focused on offense or could be more focused with different/speedier linemates. I know his offensive numbers would go up if he felt some of the pressure come off defensively.

Will Granlund, when he comes over the pond, be a master of the "Finnish Poke Check"?

Awesome interview with Granlund:



Quote:
“It’s obvious just by looking at him that Mikael has got a lot stronger and bigger. His skating is faster and more powerful, and his whole appearance shows how hard he has worked all summer. He has got the eye of the tiger,” HIFK head coach Kari Jalonen said.


Sign the kid to a lifetime contract!!!
