Except that instead of showing Canada-Sweden, they replay US-Finland for about the 5th time, assclowns.
Hah, what an IIHF call, penalty on Asplund.
Sweden's exhibition season started today, meaning Asplund could see action as early as Friday. FBK have just three exhibition games scheduled since they also have four CHL Group O games scheduled vs Krakow and Sparta Prague. All dates and times are copy-pasta (local to Sweden, or -6 to get ET) via SWE Hockey and Champions Hockey League:
2016-08-12 17:00, FÃ¤rjestad BK - FrÃ¶lunda HC, Lionshov Ishall
2016-08-13 15:00, FÃ¤rjestad BK - Norway, Lionshov Ishall
2016-08-19 19:30, Comarch Cracovia - Farjestad Karlstad, Tauron Arena Krakow
2016-08-21 14:30, Sparta Prague - Farjestad Karlstad, O2 Arena Prague
2016-08-31 18:30, FrÃ¶lunda HC - FÃ¤rjestad BK, Stenungsund Arena
2016-09-04 17:00, Farjestad Karlstad - Sparta Prague, Lofbergs Arena
2016-09-10 15:00, Farjestad Karlstad - Comarch Cracovia, Lofbergs Arena
Asplund is dressed for today's exhibition and is centering Marcus Nilsson and Per Aslund on the first line.
Goalie saved Asplund's penalty shot attempt, midway through, still 0-0.
FBK ended up losing yesterday's game 1-0. Today, they defeated Norway 4-3, with Asplund centering the second line between Marcus Nilsson and Oskar Steen. His contribution to the game summary was a slashing penalty and FBK scored a SHG while it was served and killed, so no harm done. Again, no points to mention. Next game for FBK is a CHL tilt on Aug 19th in Poland.
Asplund will see CHL action today in ~20 minutes. Game liveblog:

Asplund makes it 3-1 FBK, converting a centering pass at the net front.
Asplund goal highlight ~2:20 --> http://www.championshockeyleague.net/gamecentre/ihm400o16#recap
Asplund ranked 101st in Pronmans Top 120 prospects.
Thought that was a tad low vs where some other comparables fell, Rubtsov 36, Eriksson Ek 49, Holmstrom 78
He'll be on the rise soon enough, I think he'll have an impressive WJC
I listened to Pronman on a Toronto radio station. He gushed over every Leaf prospect. When asked if there was a player who might not be so good he seemed taken aback.. If the Leafs drafted or traded for him then he was an A.
The leafs do have a lot of good prospects in his defense.

Asplund looking sharp. Confident with puck, finding space, good D support. Will probably top out 17+mins TOI - hit that just 3x last year.
Asplund working left wall on first PP unit but nada for FBK. Remains 1-1 game with 6:00 to go.

@SabresProspects - Video-Asplund Snipes Game Winner - http://www.sabresprospects.com/2016/09/weekend-rap-asplund-snipes-winner.html
Rasmus Asplund connected on a one-timer in overtime Sunday to thrust Farjestad BK to a 4-3 SHL victory over Linkoping HC. Exactly one minute into the extra session with each team down a man, Asplund drifted down the right circle to swipe a Joakim Nygard pass to complete the come-from-behind victory in front of a raucous home crowd. The marker was Asplund's first of the season, seventh of his SHL career and second-ever game-winner.
Asplund looks primed for a strong post-draft season
Rasmus Asplund one assist - three shots on goal - a season-high 18:24 Time On Ice - as FÃ¤rjestad loses to HV71 4-1.
Rasmus Asplund takes the opening draw for FÃ¤rjestad as they take on Victor Olofsson and FrÃ¶lunda.
After being top PP option in MODO, Olofsson starting to see time on right wall on FHC #2 unit. Just took a lane to net for good chance.
Nice 4v4 shift for Asplund. Skated to gain space, maintain possession. Raced to gather loose puck and reset. Has 1 of FBK's 2 hits early on.
Four FÃ¤rjestad penalties in the first 12:06 certainly helping the penalty-killing portion of Asplund's development.
Man, Swedish hockey fans are the best. The crowd shots when the home team scores...incredible. Exact opposite of most of these NHL morgues.
Asplund controls loose puck, gets to boards, kicks it to point for second assist on the OT winner. Nice play. FÃ¤rjestad downs FrÃ¶lunda 2-1.
Asplund also earned a career-high 20:21 of work in the victory.
4 points in 6 games for Asplund.
Just based on his early production compared to last year, looks like he took some big strides.
