According to Habs Prospects Nygren must be signed by July 1st 2013.

I don't see why he won't be signed.

He is starting on the same line his father and Damien Fleury, should be interesting to watch.

Thanks! Good to hear the 96-guys played well. I expect many underage guys to play in the U18WJC later this spring, the 95 group is a bit worse than other recent age-groups but possibly adding guys like Nylander, Andersson, Karlsson, Lindblom, Forsbacka, Aho, Pettersson and Kempe could make the team competitive.

Nylander skating a lap around the offensive zone for his first pro assist. Makes sense.

He was skating behind the net setting guys up all night. He could've easily left the game 1+2 or 1+3. Pretty impressive for the first game.

He definitely belongs playing against men. No more J20 for him.

Nylander will be a dominant offensive player next season. He is already very good but could work on his defensive game, also impressed with Pastrnak.

Let's talk more about Rasmus Andersson. Saw him in the game against DIF the other night and boy did he look good as a 16 year old. Stood up for himself in a chippy game and had the confidense to deke two guys before carrying the puck into the offensive zone for one of Malmös few chanses. Can skate, will grow, allready filled out and looking good against great competition.

His brother Calle looked really good as well, but in my opinion Rasmus looked even better...

Anyone else care to share their thoughts?

He hit double digits in points, when he opened the scoring today. Amazing that he was only 15, when the season started.

Burakovsky also got his 10th point of the season today. The transition to senior hockey has been rough for him, but he's coming along nicely. Been playing good for the past weeks and the points are starting to drop in now. Points in the last 3 games, if you don't count the Djurgården game where he was the 13th forward because of an injury.

It's certainly encouraging with the number of absolute top level talent playing in Sweden right now. Starting with Lindholm and continuing with Nylander, Rasmus Andersson, Pastrnak, Vrana..

Wallmark with 5+4 in 14 games. For comparison Burakowsky is 4+6 in 37 games and De la Rose 6+6 in 36.
Pretty good for a guy who can't skate.

Do you think there are any "hidden prospects" in the Allsvenskan (or juniors) that could be drafted in the future NHL drafts?

Fredrik Händemark from Leksand has had some impressive games this season. He has scored some goals and has excellent size at 6´4". Since he has been passed over twice, I´m not sure if he´ll be drafted this time either. Emil Djuse from Södertälje has been great, but he is ranked pretty high for this year´s Draft and he already played at WJC.

I've wondered why Robin Press is not listed by NHL Central Scouting. Are there concerns with his skating?

Also, because he's ranked low, they must think Gustav Possler's success won't translate well to NHL.

NHL Central Scouting is not perfect, but they seem to reflect NHL viewpoints on first year draft eligible players pretty well except the European scout for Central Scouting seems to favor the smaller kids more than the NHL teams do.

Kids passed over in earlier drafts do seem to get rated much higher by NHL teams. So, the question about Handemark appears to be a good one. I'd think the NHL teams would jump at a kid as big as Handemark if they think his skating is good enough.

I also wonder about these kids. Which of these are legit draft prospects?

Mikael Frycklund, C (1993 birth year, VIK Vasteras, SWE2)
Jonas Emmerdahl, D (1992 birth year, VIK Vasteras, SWE2)

Mattias Goransson, D (1995 birth year, Brynas, J20 SuperElit Top 10)
Andreas Borgman, D (1995 birth year, Timra, J20 SuperElit Top 10)
Tobias Lindberg, C (1995 birth year, Djurgardens, J20 SuperElit Top 10)
Filip Algeman, G (1993 birth year, Sodertalje, J20 SuperElit Top 10)
Fredrik Bergvik, G (1995 birth year, Frolunda, J20 SuperElit Top 10)

Amil Krupic, D (1995 birth year, Rogle, J20 SuperElit Forts.)
Ahlbin Hernod, D (1995 birth year, Rogle, J20 SuperElit Forts.)
Hampus Olsson, LW (1995 birth year, Rogle, J20 SuperElit Forts.)
Andreas Wingren, RW (12/30/94 birthday, Rogle, J20 SuperElit Forts.)
Gustav Berling, C (1994 birth year, Rogle, J20 SuperElit Forts.)
Oskar Norlov, LW (1994 birth year, Rogle, J20 SuperElit Forts.)
Mikael Johansson, C (1995 birth year, Vaxjo, J20 SuperElit Forts.)
Fredrik Hellstrom, G, (1994 birth year, VIK Vasteras, J20 SuperElit Forts.)

Oskar Niklasson, D (1995 birth year, Farjestads, J18 Allsvenskan North)
Tobias Dyk, LW (1995 birth year, IF Malmo, J18 Allsvenskan South)

I'd suspect some of these kids will be drafted, but I'm only looking at stats, heights, and weights and don't know much specifics if any about their game.

His skating has looked fine from what I've seen. I'd say the concerns are about his defending(he's been/is a forward too) and overall upside. He went from playing mid-tier junior hockey as a D, then he started as a forward in the SEL2, and now he's a full-time defenseman on his new team.[/QUOTE]

Frycklund got many points from playing as a gritty player in a line with Berglund and Backlund during the lockout, dont think he will be drafted.

Emmerdahl is a consistent offensively good D but i dont think he can make the NHL.

Norlöv is injury prone i think and had a long term injury before this season, so its a risk drafting him.

I'd say both of these kids have good potential. Frycklund is a gritty player with some playmaking abilities. He has good size and would be suitable for a 3rd/4th line in the future.
It actually baffles me that Emmerdahl hasn't been drafted already. He is a big guy and a great skater.

The 17 year old Slovakian forward Peter Cehlarik got his first elitserien goal yesterday for Luleå against Skellefteå. Looks like a quite talented player.

http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=153203

Gunnarsson had an assist and I believe Gustafsson made something like 23 saves. Skellefteå still won, though, 4-3 after a shootout.

Wennberg scoring goals like this: http://www.sportklipp.nu/vod/?vid=yg...&sw=440&sh=240 in Allsvenskan, when he only had one goal last season in J20 is pretty amazing. 1+1 today.

Sebastian Aho, defenseman born 1996, is on the lineup to make his SEL debut tonight, for Skelleftea. Lets hope he gets some icetime.
