    Where are they playing? How are they doing? What are their stats for the season?

    Thanks!

    Starkov is playing in the SEL. Don't know his stats offhand, MacLean has raved about him on his radio show a few times, so I wouldn't be shocked if they sign him to a contract in the offseason and he plays in the AHL next season.

    Popperle is playing in the Germen league. He's very much in the plans of the Jackets and figures to at least be starting in the AHL next season, with a slim outside chance of backing up Leclaire in Columbus.

    Starkov has done a good job in the SEL, his point production may not show it but there are other aspects to the game ;) :)

    Starkov plays in a all junior-line in Frölunda, and last time I heard about them, they still hadnt been scored on at even strenght.

    Granted, they arent given more than a few minutes per game (6-7?), but thats still pretty impressive from a bunch of kids. I believe that Daniel Alfredssons younger brother plays in that line aswell?

    Might be wrong about the last part though..

    Tom Wandell has scored 32 points in 34 junior games. The regular season is this year divided into two parts, making it kind of tricky to collect the stats. I guess the reason for this schedule is to cut down on travelling costs.

    It´s P-J Axelsson's younger brother (Anton) who plays in Frölunda, not Alfie's.

    Yea, he isn't in the best 8 team part of the league so scoring will be much easier.

    Sundstrom's combined J20 SuperElit and J20 SuperElit Top 8 stats are as following.
    22 games, 15 goals and 27 points
