    Klasen would be the leading player on any swedish team. Didn't have the best work ethic before but that has sure changed during his time in Luleå. Complete player. His line-mates were nothing special.

    Can anyone give me a scouting report on Robin Karlsson who played with AIK JR this past year? Cedar Rapids (USHL) drafted him and expects he will come to the states to play.

    Thanks in advance.

    passed the midway point in the season now so I figure I'll ask

    Has anyone got a look at Sam Duggan with Örebro J18?

    13GP 5G 7A 12PTS leading Örebro in scoring as they sit in 4th place and on pace for a birth in J18 Allsvenskan

    If so when? How was he?

    Can anyone give a little scouting report on Melker Karlsson? Sharks just called him up for his first NHL game

    It's actually co-written by someone else on here. Can't remember who, though.

    How's Lehkonen playing? He's been struggling to get on the score sheet but his +/- doesn't look too bad so I suppose he's at least doing something right?

    Melker Karlsson has been fantastic so far. Plays like a 10 year vet.

    That is his first stage. Farbror Melker.
    He will then develop into Kamikaze-Karlsson until he reaches his final stage - Melkin.

    I'm looking for a little more in-depth infos on two players, who are rumoured to get signed by my hometown team Cologne Sharks / DEL:

    Färjestad's Per Aslund
    From the scouting report on EP he sounds like a reliable scorer with a sound two-way-game. Could anyone go a little more into detail on him?

    Linköping's Johannes Salmonsson
    He seems to be rather a defensive forward, but what I get from the reports on Linköping's playoffs he tears it up in the postseason.
    Would be great to get your opinion on him.
    It's said that Cologne signing him would depend on him getting a German passport. Since Google Translate doesn't seem to be the most reliable, there is confusion whether or not his mother is German. (Something about his mother was mentioned in a Swedish paper, but the crappy translation didn't clarify what's the deal there.)

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    That can't be right, can it? Can DEL still limit the number of non-German players, not only non-EU players?

    Ã…slund is a solid two-way guy, not a lot of flash there but still a solid producer and reliable winger, has been producing like a top-6 forward here for a while but never really taken the last step to be a star, does not really have one or two qualities that are elite, just solid all-around.

    Salomonsson, more speedy, more of a flash in the pan kind of guy, but very inconsistent and invisible for long stretches, as you mentioned, always seems to turn it up a notch in the playoffs.

    Thanks for your input!

    Yes, the DEL does limit the number of import-players. So, if Salmonsson could actually get a German passport and does not eat up an import roster spot, it would be a big deal.
    I have no clue about what requirements would have to be met for that to happen, though.

    His mother is German. They are probably looking for a dual citizenship here.

    How would you guys rate Linus Soderstrom amongst SuperElit goaltenders? Do you think he will make the jump to the SHL next year? Ever be NHL quality?

    Thanks!

    And by the way, Cologne just confirmed that Aslund has signed a one-year deal with them. Pretty excited to get to see him play here.

    Niklas Hansson - Dallas Stars Prospect

    13pts in 16 games so far. Impressive.

    Can I some scouting reports on him?

    How does he compare to John Klingberg?

    Thanks!

    He's been great thus far for HV71. The step to SHL has been without problems, have been getting tons of ice-time because of injuries and suspensions to his team.

    Great first pass, gets shots through, very intelligent hockey player. Nowhere near the levels of Klingberg, doesn't have that special something that Klingberg has that opens up space and allows him to play with some risk and open things up, he's just a very good puck-moving defenceman, think he'll have a great year or two in Sweden now and then come over, but wouldn't say he's good enough that he will stick in the NHL right away.

    I have a general question. Peter Forsberg, Filip Forsberg and last night Anton Forsberg, a goalie for the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL.

    Is Forsberg a common Swedish name? I assume that none of the guys above are related to each other.

    To be quite precise, 16367 persons living in Sweden have the last name Forsberg.

    Eliteprospects have player profiles for 148 Forsbergs, five were drafted by NHL teams. :>
