    This may be redundant but I haven't heard mention of him all training camp or pre-season. Was he here or did i miss something?
    Thanks!

    No he wasn’t here. He was signed and instantly loaned to his SEL team for this season. He will at next years camp.

    He'll play. Vaxjo took the championsleague serious last year and Persson was their lead scorer. Seeing the struggles they've had so far in regular season I bet they'll want a statement game vs Cardiff.

    Knee jerk reaction he may work better as a forward backs up too much gives up too much ice

    One observation is he does many passes that would get him eaten alive in the nhl

    I mean, this is an exhibition game is it not? I would prefer he attempt creative stuff when he sees the openings personally.

    p.s. thanks for the reports!

    He reads the play well and knows how to position himself.

    While he has the slap shot he also has the wrist and snap in his tool kick

    Thanks for the game notes. Pretty much agrees with what I have seen in the few viewings I have managed this season.

    My concerns are

    1. Never on the ice for face offs in his own zone. Might have been just this game.
    2. When was killing 4 minute short handed situation and rolled with 3 sets of 4. He was never on the ice.
    3. When the devil's were on the attack when 5 on 5 he backed up giving up too much ice and allowing several scoring chances
    4. Got pushed around on the ice and avoided contact
    5. He can skate

    He reminds me of MAB with his open ice passes.

    God I would love for him to work out. From TAing during the day in the third tier Swedish league to NHL prospect... What a story. Thanks for sharing.

    Another assist tonight.

    8 pts in his last 6 GP.

    He is now leading all D in scoring in the SHL
    21 GP 3 G 12 A 15 pts

    That's a lot for SHL. D men top scorers, very top, normally are around 35 pts over 55 GP. Joel is on pace for 39 pts.
