    Hey guys, ok so he just signed with Pittsburgh a couple days ago, anyone know much about him? I know there arent a heck of alot of diehard Penguins fans that know their teams prospect base but this guy looks like he might have a bit of potential to be a player for them down the road. Anyone know what his plans are for next year/ Is he coming over to play in Wilkes Barrie? Anyone got a take on him? How good is he?

    Alot of potential but has had injury problems.

    Honestly I was shocked we got him signed. I thought he was going to be another Malenkykh.

    He's most definitely a project player. I doubt we'll see him in Pittsburgh for at least two years.

    Most likely, yeah. I can't see him as a regular NHL'er for at least two seasons.

    Malenkykh was a 1999 draftee of the Pens that most feel could play in the NHL easily but hasn't come over and 99.9% guarantee that he never will for a miriad of reasons, mainly being that he wants a one-way contract and Patrick apaprently wasn't willing to give it to him.

    Fernholm was highly rated during his draft year but fell to the 4th round due to injury and incosistency concerns.

    From the HF 2002 Draft Preview (http://www.hockeysfuture.com/2002draftpreview.php)...



    He is a big defenseman and remains a project. He'll need at least two years in the minors before he's ready for the NHL. He has all the skills, he just needs to finally put it all together.

    Fernholm played very well in the end of last season with Djurgården, and showed that he could use his body effectively and also showed some nice puck moving skills. He aint ready for the NHL, but was selected to represent Sweden in the first tournament in Euro Hockey Tour, although he can't play due to his NHL signing. He was supposed to play reguraly in Djurgården this year, and probably log a lot of minutes on the boxplay.
