Hahahahaha! This is gold! haaaaa
Marcus Karlberg C Leksands IF J20 is a potential rocket riser this season. He has started of this season great and is the leading scorer in J20 SuperElit.
Here are some recently drafted skaters that have a strong start to their season;

2018 years draft starts to look more intresting when it comes to swedish players. . Dahlin, Boqvist, Olofsson, Hallander, Lundestrom all looks like first round players. Will be intresting to see if they can continue like they have started or if they they will hit a wall.
safe to assume wahlstrom is going top 10?
Try the American thread instead But yeah, he's had a good start!
Hes a duel citizen on EP so i'm not wrong
Can anyone provide a word on olle Eriksson Ek? He has some great numbers to start the year but some context would be nice.
Good size, good gloves and high compete level.
This is his second season in J20SE and his team has been playing solid this year.
Filip Gustavsson has been solid in the SHL this season, so I'd say Olle Eriksson Ek is among the frontrunners for the backup position at the WJC.
Appreciate the feedback guys.
How is Victor Ejdsell, a Nashville prospect, looking? He's into the top 10 in scoring in the SHL. Has his skating improved, or his chances of making it to the NHL?
Thoughts on Fredrick Karlstrom, Emil Bemstrom, Lukas Elvenes and Lucas Carlsson?
Elvenes is having a great season with Oskarshamn, currently with 19 points this season. His older brother Ludvig is on the same team, and currently has 10 points.
Karlström currently plays limited minutes with Linköping, but I believe he'll be a returning player for the Swedish WJC team.
Rasmus Dahlin did not look sharp at all against real men in the Karjala Tournament in Finland.
Still a young kid with pimples on his face among grown men.
The same goes for Västra Frölunda in SHL.
If he is chosen to the Olympics - then the Swedish coach goin' way wrong.
What do you call the players in the SHL, fake men?
He's already the best defenseman on a struggling Frölunda (If you ask me) and was the best defenseman on that Swedish team. You should be throwing shots at his teams instead of him, lol.
At this point i think it would take a lot for him not to make the Olympics. Again, that might just be our national team being bad i guess.
Well. He ain't a new Zlatan of Swedish hockey me thinx. But that is just me ...
Zlatan was a nobody when he was 17
You are forgetting his age
He's just salty that a Swede is going first overall next year, must sting.
Just imagine if Boqvist goes second too, ouch.
Boqvist hasn't been that good (in the SHL) so far this season, though. Hållander and Olofsson (both Timrå) and Lundeström (Luleå) have been better among 2018 prospects.
Boqvist has played a total of 12 minutes in the SHL this season. Lundeström is a year older and the other two are playing in a league where Boqvist would put up numbers. He's a far better prospect than the ones you mentioned.
I seem to recall the local newspapers writing that Boqvist is hoping to get loaned to an Allsvenskan team; if he has only 12 minutes TOI so far, I understand why he'd rather play in Allsvenskan.
Can someone tell me some more about Lunderstrom?
Not really sure if he is a long term center or wing. He seems like he will be mid 1st round as well? Don’t know a lot about him though.
Has Jesper Wallstedt been receiving any hype in Sweden?
