Nichlas Torp (merged)

6th Round Selection 163rd Overall

I don't see many people talking about him, how did he fall so low? is his injury that serious? Central Scouting had him ranked 7th European. Anyone seen him play have any more in depth reviews?

39. St. Louis Blues - Nichlas Torp - Defense - Sweden Jr.
~Whoever said this was a weak draft must have been jealous that STL owned four picks within the first 40 selections. STL has hit every area of weakness skater wise in their system with the selections of Blum, Mayorov, Legein, and now Torp. Torp is one of those savvy Swedish blueliners who can do everything well; he is a leader as well and exudes a calming influence when he's on the ice. STL now has built a defensive wall with Johnson, Blum, and Torp to place around Schwarz/Bishop.

The only reason he dropped so far, must because of the shoulderinjury which held him out of play for half the season. The skill is there. He´s only 5'11", but he plays big. Very very tough.. seeks open-ice hits.. is really physical. Good hockeysense, two-way defensman, mobile and a very nice slapper from the blueline. He was my top-pick of the swedish defenseman available in this years draft.

39 STL SIMON HJALMARSSON 2/1/1989 Varnamo, Sweden SE 5' 11" 161 SWE-JR. FROLUNDA JR. RW

Torp was drafted by the Canadiens

Torp got in a fight today at HV71's practice with one of SEL's biggest instigators, Andreas Jämtin.

- Things like this happens. The younger guys want to show that they belong on the team. The competition is fierce, Jämtin said.

Nichlas Torp

what's happening with him? Are HV71 going to make him play? or they will sent him to the J20 SuperElit because he won't play much in the SEL?

Yeah, he'll probably spend most of the season in the SuperElit league because of HV's depth on D.

Torp dislocated his shoulder in the preseason and had surgery last week. He will be back Jan/feb.

next year yeech, tuff luck. well, too bad. I think HV71 should play him. Scrape the international "stars" let some more young ones on the ice. Im bored with the imported players that aren´t better some of the yuongsters, and they are more intresting to watch IMO anyway.

Nichlas Torp

I've been scrolling through a couple of pages here and can't seem to find anything about Nichlas Torp.

Any word on how he's developing? Is he going to play for the Habs?

Just wondering...

And my apologies if this has already been discussed - I probably didn't dig through enough pages...

From the Frölunda-HV71 game preview at HV71.se:

"Nichlas Torp behöver fortfarande få upp lite styrka till i sin arm."

"Nichlas Torp still needs to gain some more strength in his arm."

I'm sure the Swedish posters around here can answer much better then I can, but in talking with others over the course of the year, it seemed as though, Torp will have a tough time keeping a full time roster spot with HV71 next year. I have no clue if he would consider the CHL route, but I got to think the Habs would love to see him do it, as they have to sign him before June 1st, 2008.

As a 2007 draftee, he doesn't need to be signed until next year.

I don't follow HV71 much since I hate them, but from the looks of it, Torp is their No. 8 defenseman right now.

Thanks, it's a typo on my part, meant to say that the Habs likely would want him to come over to the CHL next year, so they can get a good look at him before he has to be signed. But if he can make HV71's roster and get good ice time, I'd rather see him stay in the SEL, although in talking with HV71 fans this year it seems as though he will have a hard time getting good ice time next year.

Depth chart:

Louma - Angell
Puistola - Petrasek
Grillfors - Halvardsson
Gustafsson - Torph

There has be a few injuries for Torph to get any real icetime...

Problem is that, even though they might not be that famous names for NA-watchers but it is IMO the best defense-group in SEL. He will not get past any of the top 4 and Grillfors has really taken a step forward, he should be number 5.

Halvardsson had a real great season in 2006 I believe, afterwards he got signed by Islanders, failed, came back, got injured for a long time but he is a stud when healthy.

Gustafsson... The legend. He is one of the greatest defensemen in HV71's history, getting a bit too old now though.

But yeah... he will have a real tough time to get past them but at the same time, HV71's coach, Kenta Johansson, is famous for letting up younger players and letting them develop. Maybe he will give him the icetime.
