Can anyone offer some info/comparisons on this guy?

He is supposed to play a very aggresive physical style but has a sniper's shot...His PIM's suggest he is that style a player...His international tournament ststs are not so impressive-but that may be due tohow they used him in non "go to" roles on lesser lines...IN Skare DIV I (SWE3 men's) he was the top Jr. pts leader in his division and it seemed got a more prominent role in the playoffs (he scored some important goals and PP goals) -but it is hard to judge him vs. some of his swedish Jr. peers who played Jr. and may have gotten more featured offensive roles in international tournaments except to note that in a peer to peer tournament against some of these Jr. swedish draft-eligibles a year ealier (2007/08 inthe J18 Elit playoffs he outscored Josefson,Thegel,Rodin and Silfverberg--so the fact he has not done as well as them recently in international play or the fact he got zero pts. in a late 10 game call-up to Farjestads in the SEL may have more to do with minutes played and role than his potential impact as a player.

A bit over PPG now in SEL-2. With his size he should at least be invited to the training camp next year, right?

31 GP 14 G 22 A 36 P

Pretty sure the Flames released him a couple of summers ago.

Iirc NHL teams only hold the right to Euro players for 2 years but I always forget if this is correct or not

He's having a good year this year. Probably bound for play in Elitserien.
