Very excited by his play to start this season. Building on a great rookie SHL campaign.

It looks like the Leafs are going to get something good out of that pick.

Considering he was picked 202nd overall, if he plays even one NHL game it should be considered a massive success, let alone if he actually carves a career out for himself.

Looking quite positive so far. Next year we can see him at the main camp.

The younger players tend to play well during pre-season. He's certainly not going to put up these kind of numbers when the real season starts, but it looks promising.

Veteran players usually sit out as the kids try to carve out a spot on the team. It's the same as any other pre-season action, you don't risk injuring your roster players. Typically younger players get more games into get their feet wet, and gain momentum into the season.

I mean he was 0.5 PPG in his rookie year last season. Was a PPG for the first half and then tailed off. He'll be one of their top scorers this season. Obviously his current insane pace isn't going to continue.

Not the case here, and I expect him to be Frölunda's top scorer this season, it's either him or Olimb.

This kid is one of the fastest rising prospects out there. I'll definately be keeping an eye on him this season.

Will definitely try to catch as many Frolunda games as possible this year. Perhaps Engvall will see some action this year in the SHL as well.

Just think of Viktor Stalberg in the preseason with his last season as a Leaf. Young guys try hard to get noticed and try and earn a better spot while older guys either dont play or just go through the motions

Different situation my friend. The johnson-Olimb line is actually 50% of Frolunda's offense !! There are no veterans who will take his spot, lately he has been their offensive dynamo

Anyway, i've been following him since he was drafted. He has developped really well

I take that with a grain of salt. I mean watch the 95s mark. That's just way too easy. He just lit up some very weak competition. Good for him but I will wait to see how he does when the real games begin

Oh I dont doubt for a second thats its different and that hes going to be a really strong offensive force this year but im just saying I dont think he goes in to the regular season on a 2ppg pace. Should be good for him if he can live up to being the teams offensive leader at that age over a whole season

It's hard to judge until the season gets underway, but he's doing everything right as of now. Very interesting prospect.

Nobody is saying he would. Just that he is a surprising prospect considering he was a 7th rounder !!

Btw, he has more points than 14 in 7 games !! from the games i know about, he has 15pts in 5 games (3preseason(6pts)+2Champions League(9pts))

Edit: Frolunda only played 6 games this preseason: http://eishockey.wettpoint.com/en/teams/5107.html

Ohhhhhhhh I hope so. The Leafs are long overdue for a late round gem. Our last one was TOMAS KABERLE.
