    Draft eligible last year; currently has a 0.989 Sv% and a 0.33 GAA through three games as a 19-year-old in the Swedish Allsvenskan. Has only let in one goal on 92 shots over those games, including a 41-save shutout, a 25-save shutout, and a 26/27-save game.

    Played alright (0.913 SV%) through three games in the SHL last year, but didn't play great during his main stint in the J20 SuperElit.

    Do any Swedish fans/goalie aficionados know much more about him?

    I was a pretty big fan of him in his draft year. Calm, reads the play well, very quick side-to-side, challenges shooters actively, doesn't panic, positionally solid, good reflexes. The downside obviously being his size but I'd probably have used a selection on him in the later rounds if I was an NHL team picking in the 2017 draft.

    Haven't really followed him since then so can't comment on how he has developed.

    This kid gets no love, which is a shame. Yes, he plays on a stacked Oskarsham team, but he is playing really well in a mens league. I don't know why he wasn't drafted, being the 3rd highest rated goalie in Europe.

    Only a 1.4 GAA and a .950% save percentage in 10 games.

    Any chances that he is getting drafted this year?
