just bigger role/icetime or has his game already reached a different level?

considering he already played 4 allsvenskan games last year, is he expected to be called up soon to the senior team?
Simon Karlsson plays for Malmö in SEL-2 The team is making a great push to finally get back to SEL and have aquired tons of high profile players in the offseason (aswell as during the season). The chances for juniors to make the team and get good icetime (like for the Westerholm twins) is really slim. They are not in a rebuilding mode, and not likely to have patience with unpolished juniors.

Since the team has loads of injuries he might be the 7th d-man in next game.

It's a shame though, the team had a good promising group of juniors where a lot of the players have chosen to go elsewhere (CHL, other swedish teams) since the opportunities for youngsters are few and far between in Malmö.

so if i get it right, he has already joined the senior team that competes in the Allsvenskan, but he has not been dressed so far?

He has trained with the senior team now and then and played some preseason game, but has yet to get any icetime in SEL-2. He is 9th on the depth chart among d-men right now. On a normal SEL-2 team he would have been given a chance by now, but Malmös team is stacked for being a SEL-2 team. Among others they have they recently aquired the former Columbus-player Jean Luc Grand Pierre that I personally think is a awful hockeyplayer even on that level allthough he is tough.

Watching USA-SWEDEN in WJAC. Oscar Dansk looks awesome. Ludvig Bystrom has shone aswell on defense.

Unbelievable. Sweden win it 1-0 with 6 seconds to play after a Ludvig Nilsson shot that trickled in over the line after being initially saved. Dansk totally stole this one with a 51 shot shutout.. even got a round of applause from the Canadian crowd when announced the game MVP.

Yup, they streamed for free with account.

Well, Sweden was outplayed for most part and had basically no sustained pressure at all at even strength. I'll give them that they kept USA to the outside quite effectively and didn't turn over the puck a lot. Bystrom had a great slide to prevent a 2on1 and Dansk saved a few breakaways, but the D as a whole had a good game. For Forwards Nilsson, Possler and Karlsson had somewhat good games but the goal was a total fluke. Sweden, Russia and Czechs are carrying J18 teams while Canada and USA have lots of -93 born and a couple of -92 born aswell. The Swedish team looks massive though, so shouldn't be a problem.

Robin Persson 14:16
He is paired with Magnus Johansson, and I would say first pairing is Magnus Johansson and whoever he plays with. When it comes to minutes the three defender veterans Johansson, Hävelid and Åkerman (three first pairings consists of one veteran and "a younger guy") gets more minutes than their partner, including minutes i power play and with a man short (3-4 against 5).

Hey guys I'm a Dallas Stars fan and very intrigued by their pick Emil Molin; however, I'm having trouble finding much info on him (style of play, points this year, etc) Does anyone have any info on him or has seen him play this year?

Haven't seen him myself, but here are his stats with Brynäs in the J20 SuperElit league (he leads the team in points):
PHP Code:
GP__G___A__TP__PIM__FO__FO+__FO-__FO%__SOG__SG%__PPG__SHG__GWG__GTG___+__-__+/-
13__9__14__23___37__27___12___15___44___50___18___2____1____0____0___15__6___9_ 
He's also played a total of 6 minutes and 25 seconds over six games with Brynäs' SEL team.
Dunno if he actually played in all six games, but he was dressed at least.

He's the son of Brynäs veteran Ove Molin, who played in the SEL as recently as last year.

Emil Molin seems to be the junior that is first in line to get to play with the seniorteam. However Brynäs got 14 forwards under contract so unless there is some injuries he will have a hard time getting icetime.
There is quite a few Brynäs forwards that have expiring contracts + Järnkrok, Silfverberg and Johan Larsson that might be ready to move over to NA, so spots might open up next season.

Tim Heed is putting up points as always, he have 18 points in 19 games so far and leads the scoringrace for d-man in Allsvenskan with a wide margin. However I don't think he has progressed as well defensively as you woud have hoped, he is still a below average skater and you can still tell that he used to be a forward (weak positioning). I don't think he will ever be a NHL-player.

A d-man that has that kind of PP-quarterback skills will however have a very sucessful career and rack up a lot of points wherever he plays, but his flaws are too obvious to ever make it to NHL(hopefully I am wrong). If he just was a better skater I would have more faith in him.

16yo Robin Press making his debut for Almtuna in Allsvenskan tonight. He leads J20 elit Östra in scoring and is playing both as D and forward there. Anyone watching tonight with a comment about his play?

Pair of assists for Filip Forsberg in Leksand's win over Almtuna IS. He now has 2+3 in 18 games.

No points but Collberg played a good game with limited ice time, created a few quality chances.

So he is back with the big club now? How did he do with the J-20 squad when he was sent down?
