Brodin just had a chance from the blueline and shot it into the shin guards....
The offensive game will take some time...he is very good at following the play, supporting, and finding open space. His shot is just not very strong yet. Defensively, just as I saw at the WJC...great gap coverage, great stick, and awesome first pass.
Brodin played 18:20 in his Worlds debut. Got some good reviews from his team mates aswell..
Marts(coach): "He's so calm och was doing very well. He's a big player. Too bad he will be gone [to the NHL] if he gets to play a lot here. We'll have to hide him somewhere."
Kronwall: "It's impressive. You could see it already at the first practice that he will be a very special player. He feels like a new Kenny Jonsson, not a mistake and he always comes out with the puck. He takes the right decisions. We'll see a lot more of him in the future. His hockey sense is better than most others."
Alfredsson: "Fun to watch Brodin, I've never seen him play before. He's 18 years old and steps in and plays this good. It's impressive."
