    Robert, or his dad Kent rather, has asked for permission to leave Leksand, the management agreed.

    AIK who plays in the 2nd league has been in contact with Nilsson, but I bet Robert is more interesting in playing for Djurgården, Kent's old team. Robert practiced with them the summer 2002.

    "I want Robban to play hockey and have fun, I say that both as dad and mentor. I haven´t beeen in contact with any teams yet, but I know where I want Robban to play." - Kent Nilsson

    "Though AIK seems very weird. I want Robban to play in Elitserien (the SEL if you like)." - Kent Nilsson

    Seems like everybody's going to Djurgarden.

    Any reason why he's leaving? Lack of playing time or something?

    He sits on the bench most of the time, he doesn´t get enough playing time.
     
  4. Think he'll accept an offer if a CHL team drafts him this summer?

    The AHL age rule always confuses me.

    Can he play in the AHL in 2004-2005?

    Yes, because he's European. The age rule only applies to CHL players.

    Wasn't there rumours that a WHL wanted to draft him perhaps Calgary??

    but you would know better than I if he was drafted in an IMPORT draft...
     
  9. Nilsson was rumoured to be in talks with a few WHL teams for the 2003 Import Draft...mainly Calgary, Saskatoon and even Prince George. Most of these rumours were strung up by the local papers in each city.
