Very powerful style, strong skater and hard to knock off the puck. The best news is that he's actually pretty skilled. Draft? Probably anywhere from 2nd to 4th round.

In your opinion the top 5/10 Swedish prospects for the 2014 draft?

Any G's you think will shine and move up to the 1st or 2nd rounds?

Thanks!

William Nylander, Adrian Kempe, Anton Karlsson, Oskar Lindblom, Axel Holmström, Daniel Muzito-Bagenda for F's and Julius Bergman, Sebastian Aho, Emil Johansson, Adam Ollas Mattsson for D's.

Generally it's a strong class for forwards, perhaps as many as four first-rounders and two top10, while there might not be a first-round defenseman in that group.

I don't see a top60 goalie prospect right now, maybe Linus Söderström who's got good size and will see international competition.

I like Gustav Forsling a lot. He's smart and has great mobility, seen too little of him to predict his draft position.

Robert Hägg scored and was Modos best D in his first pre-season game with Modo against Porin Ässät, that won the SM-liiga last year. The goal was a booming slapshot from the blue line, ofcourse. But the best player of the game was Linus Ullmark, with 38 saves and a shutout.

A new tournament called U20 Super Challenge just started in Karlstad, Sweden. 4 Swedish J20 teams will be participating along with 3 finnish teams and the norwegian U20 national team. Quite a bit of talent in this tournament, surely some potential first round picks in the next couple of drafts like Kempe, Kylington, Muzito Bagenda, Timashov, Grundström, Asplund.

Every game is streamed for free here: http://www.livearena.com

Edit: Not every game it seems.

Played in the second line with Mattias Ritola and Mario Kempe. Showed some nice speed and hands. You can tell he's capable of changing the game with his individual skills.

Yeah, they got some really great 96-borned players that will play in j20. They also got two 97-borned players in Carl Grundström and Jonathan Leman. Probably the youngest but most talented j20 team in Sweden.

Petter Granberg is only a 6.5C on Hockey's Future. Seems like low balling for a kid who played top 4 minutes with Sweden as they won a gold medal at the World Championships... What do the Swedish posters think his grade & probability should be changed to (if at all)?

Burakowsky has signed with the Caps and will most likely play with Erie in the OHL

Interested to watch Carolina at the Traverse tournament. They have Erik Karlsson, Victor Rask and Elias Lindholm.

Is there any coverage of this tournament? I believe Detroit is participating as well, would be fun to see Lindholm play against his cousin.

2015 draft eligible defenceman Oliver Kylington now leads the tournament in scoring (6 pts) and +/-. He could possibly play some games for the mens team this season.

Any Frolunda fans here? If so do you have some opinions on Tom Nilsson and Andreas Johnsson?

He seriously reminds me of a slightly better-skating Mike Grier.

Fancies himself an offensive player, but needs to work on his defensive game and turning his big frame into more of a physical, space-making force.

Has potential for sure.

I've seen a lot of him the last couple of seasons and I agree, he is a small but very smart defenseman. He rarely ends up in trouble thanks to his ability to see the ice and predict the game. He is also capable offensively and is a great point in powerplay where he almost always hits the net with his shots.

He sometimes can be a little bit unnoticable in games and should learn to take more space and dominate, he's got the potential.

I saw a lot of Mike Grier in his career. Watched him extensively at BU and followed him throughout his NHL career. We played high school hockey the same year and in the same state. He's just a few months older than I am.

The way Grier used to skate, stickhandle, takes curves and generally chug and churn his way around the ice - well I was very much reminded of this in what I recently saw from Muzito Bagenda. The similarities in their game immediately stuck out to me.

That the two share the same skin color is simply one more similarity... one that you have now pointed out.
