Pronounced Cal-ee. Exact pronunciation as Captain Cally.
Here's the pronunciation of the name Calle right at the beginning of this video:

Is this kid coming over to play in the CHL next season or is he going to be able to play in the SEL?

He's taking the roster spot Jonas Brodin is leaving behind when he leaves for Minnesota.

In Sweden where we have a shortage of "natrual talents", its not stretch that developing hockey players is about "know-how". Everyone work really hard to develop training and new approches, and hence its very common that many of our best kids for long periods come from the same places. MoDo and Örnsköldsvik (Forsberg, Näslund, Sundström, Sedins and so forth) were a head of the rest for a while, Skellefteå has now for a couple of years done really well (Adam Larson, David Rundblad, Tim Erixon). Brynäs too (Marklund, Järnkrok and Silverberg).

Färjestad is traditionally a very good hockey market and team, that always has a great atmosphere in their lockerroom and a winning tradition on the ice. A no-nonsense team. But for a long time they've really struggled to develop NHLers. Håkan Loob came from Färjestad, but besides him remarkably few of the Swedish NHLers come from Färjestad (I can think of Jonas Höglund and Kristian Huselius as the only mainstays the last 20 years).

But lately they have started to develop some really interesting players. Daniel Brodin isn't that known yet, but he is really really good looking and Minny definitely got a steal in him and I will have almost the same impact in the NHL as Erik Karlsson have had (he isn't quite as awsome on the PP, but just as poised with the puck coming out of his own end and better defensively). Markus Johansson in Washington is another kid from Färjestad in the NHL who made it recently.

Hopefully Calle Johansson can follow in these guys fotsteps and have a impact.
I think I recall a guy named Lundqvist coming from Farjestad, right?

Meh, would have taken Prokhorkin, who went two picks later to the Cup Champs.

Round 4 – Calle Andersson, New York Rangers
The Rangers weren't the most active team with only four picks in the entire draft, but they made them all count. To me, their best pick was Calle Andersson – another big, mobile Swede who at times outshone higher ranked Swedish defenders Ludvig Bystrom and Hampus Lindholm. Honorable mentions go to Detroit with London speedster Andreas Athanasiou and Dallas with Gemel Smith.
