    Anyone know anything about this guy?

    The Red Wings apparently close to sign a contract with Fredrik Händemark of Malmö Redhawks, according to Hans Abrahamsson of Aftonbladet. So far he has 10g 22a in 40 games this season.

    Seems like Jiri Fischer must be busy this year scouting these European free agents.

    Agreed. Looks like he has decent numbers in the SHL. Would assume if he does sign its for the 2020-2021 season

    Aftonbladet has already written about the Detroit Redwings looking for the Swede.
    According to what Kvällsposten experiences, there is also a great interest from the San José Sharks. But it is not excluded that more clubs are in search of Händemark, who is a free agent, and can thus pick and choose among all NHL clubs. In addition, at a relatively low cost, which is accommodated within all NHL clubs' salary cap.
    Fredrik Händemark has an agreement with Malmö until spring 2022, but in all contracts there is NHL clause until 15 June.

    Quite sure Andersson has more time to look these Swedish guys.

    I believe Jiri's role is to specifically focus on free agents in Europe, whereas Hakan focuses on draft age kids.

    There’s also some Malte Stormwall dude who we’re rumored to have interest in.

    ya would be nice to get them both. Not sure how realistic of a chance they would have to make the NHL club next year but they do have good numbers in top European leagues this season. Would prefer to give them looks over the Erne’s and Ehn’s of the world

    Getting both he and Stormwall would be a good indication we are moving on from quite a few RFA between now and June. We are already at 47 contracts.

    I’m by no means against it. The ramifications are just interesting.

    Had this google translated from the article


    Now, Händemark is not the only undrafted Swedish forward that the former Swedish club Detroit has shown interest in. Also Örebro's Mathias Bromé, Färjestads Gustaf Rydahl and Sotjis Malte Strömvall are on the club's radar.

    Take any free assets we can get. Good competition for our younger prospects come next year also. I would hope we could bring in a few guys to get try outs this year, like Hirose did last year. Get their fet wet, see what the NHL is like and come ready to compete next year. If these guys turn out to be NHL players in any role, that's a huge win. If they don't, they provide competition for our younger prospects so they are not getting gifted a free spot, and they can then provide depth to the farm system, be traded, or return back over seas.

    Looks like we are really dipping our toes into the European UFA market. This makes me think maybe more people than expected will be moved at deadline/offseason

    I would imagine a big factor is leaving players in GR in an attempt to make the playoffs. So we would need to add something to limit our call ups.

    Ya but I don’t think these are players coming this year, these euro FA’s will be signed for 2020-2021. That type of depth would come from the NCAA FA’s

    Yep.

    Trade old core for picks and sign free assets in.

    Repeat.

    I thought I read somewhere that shl contracts have an nhl clause and they could be brought in?

    No reason to move on from Ehn. He's a kid who has OK size and he can skate.
    I'd consider trading Erne.

    Hypothetically If we do get him and the Strömwall kid it would be hard to make room for Ehn on the roster. We could be looking at something like this for 2020-2021:

    Lafreniere-Larkin- mantha
    Bertuzzi- Filppula- Zadina
    AA- Handemark- Fabbri
    Smith-Glenny- stromwall

    helm
    Abby
    Nielsen

    you still have Svech, Rass both pushing for jobs (Svech without options).

    could have a major logjam at forward next season
