    Was the same with Grewe and Bjerselius last season, top scorers in J18 but not a single game in Superelit.

    Not selected for the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, pretty weird if you ask me.

    I think they want the U16 players to enjoy the TV-pucken experience instead. Unfortunately, these two tournaments take place at the same time (at least a day or two).

    Edit: Sorry, didn't see the other posts.

    National junior tournament with regional teams. Best players from a certain region in one team and so on

    No, but it is a big tradition in Swedish hockey. It has been broadcast on national tv since 1959 and a lot of NHLers have played in it, of course. The tournament is for U16 players so this year it's for players born in 2002, and if I'm correct, Stockholm doesn't allow underage players so Holtz hasn't played it before. There will also be other interesting players participating such as Lucas Raymond (Göteborg/Gothenburg), Jesper Wallstedt (Västmanland) and Theodor Niederbach (Ångermanland), for example.

    The only experince players like Holtz get from tv-pucken is that there some tv-camera and newsreporter watching them, and that could maybe be different from what they are use to. But the level itself is not close to World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. Holtz should dominate in TV-pucken, anything else would be a huge surprise. Maybe even beat some point records.

    3 more points against Huddinge. Leads all scoring across all J18 Elit leagues and have played 2 fewer games than the five guys closest to him.

    Won the Sven Tumba-stipendium for being the best forward in the TV-pucken tournament in which his team came in 3rd. Utterly dominant at times.

    Here are some goals he scored;





    Also, here's a cool little video from last year that he uploaded on his instagram. Kid's got some major skills.

    How did he look against Finland U16? 2+3 in 3 games.

    Holtz showed he has things to work on, like his is quickness and puck skills. Put up good numbers and made several nice plays but I expected a bit more from him.
