    As a side note, whatever happened to Patrick Thoresen? I know he was suppsoed to be really talented, but wasn't drafted and seemingly has gone into obscurity. Any news on this guy?

    Thoresen will play next season with Djurgården in the Swedish Elitserien, after a very succesful season in the next-best league. I believe he's an NHL Free Agent, but I'm not sure.

    Matthias Olimb was the biggest Norwegian prospect for the 04 draft, ranked at 129 among European skaters by the CSS. He's a talented stickhandler and playmaker, but only 5'9 and not very physical, and no team decided to draft him..

    I haven't heard anything about any 2005 Norwegian prospects, but if you ask on the 'Northern Europe' board, some of the Norwegian posters there might help you..

    Is not Holtet from Norway. Stars signed him I think they are thinking either Idaho or the AHL. Supposibly his defense is dreadful
