    Here´s some news about Adam.

    I´m sad to say that Adam will not be part of Sweden’s world juniors team this year. To many offensively skilled Swedish D-men this year I guess...

    He has been playing 6 games with Brynas in the SHL so far but with very limited TOI (about 5 min per game). Been all right with very few mistakes, but of course hard to really get into the games.

    Yesterday he played with Brynas in the Champions Hockey League (an international club hockey tournament) against Czech team Trinec and got some decent TOI for the first time (18 min). Still no time in PP but had a solid game and was +1 in a loss 3 -1. I have put together some sequences from the game with a little focus on defensive plays as well.

    i hate to say it, but if he stays getting this amount of ice time, he may just join his brother in jersey, and I would love that

    He should come to London if he wants to get a ton of minutes

    He's not going to fall in the draft rankings because he's not getting minutes in the SHL, if that's what you're implying.

    I think this kid is smarter than thinking draft media exposure matters more than his development.

    Looks like he has his first SHL point now.

    Nope, doesn't make the snub any better.

    He's 17 and been getting extremely limited SHL minutes and primarily playing in the SHL. I wouldn't call it much of a snub, considering they already have Dahlin, Liljegren, and Brannstrom as offensive attacking D-men.

    Thats what Monten said, doesn't mean it makes sense.

    He's a better ice hockey player than Westerlund and Sellgren, Moverare as well, but he wasn't being left off this team.

    Except they probably want big bodies for penalty killing and such. It could be a mistake, but I don't think it is a massive snub.

    Sellgren is an inch smaller, Westerlund the same height.

    I definitely understand the reasoning why he wasn't picked, I think its bogus though. Sweden also should've taken Hallander, especially if Nylander won't be there. Sweden loves their grinders, maybe its why they struggle when the games matter.

    Adam had his usual 5 minutes in a SHL game against Lulea yesterday. In that time, he managed to make his first point (second assist), was +2, had a 2 min penalty and was part of an 3 to 1 were he set up a teammate to more or less a penalty shot (he missed).
    He´s fun to watch this guy! :)
