    You might have a better chance asking over at the Swedish national forum. There's a bunch of guys there who might give you their opinion, if they have one about Hjalmarsson.

    The prospect texts differed between Swedish and English, so I'll translate the Swedish one.

    "A capable two way defenseman that reads the game well and is very good in his physical play. Hjalmarsson has very nice timing in his checks and is comfortable in tight and physical games. Is otherwise a skilled passing player that quickly can deliver a breakup pass. Good in PP, where he has an ok shot with adequate accuracy."

    I assume you mean Simon Hjalmarsson? I blogged about him today and am working on an NHL.com article about the "Frölunda Five" (my own label for them for the article).

    Niklas Hjalmarsson is a defenseman.

    You're confusing your Hjalmarssons. :)

    Yeah, caught it on the second read that he meant the defenseman Niklas, not the forward Simon (or his brothers, for that matter).

    Lots of Hjalmarssons out there these days :).
