    I didn't do much digging, but did find a few Modo J20 videos. Below, Olofsson's #38 in red, playing the left point on this 5-v-3 goal vs Brynas J20 (2013-10-04):

    Inspired by the Reinhart thread, RinkNet has him at 5'10.5'' 157, so an 8cm increase on the MODO and SIHA listings but no increase in weight.

    I bet the team manually corrected the height and left the weight because they were unsure.

    Impressive stat line, for someone unfamiliar with scouting why was he only a 7th round risk pick?

    Translation was pretty good, thanks.

    I liked this:

    Well, of course Örnsköldsvik is a hockey town. Goes without saying. ;P

    Great read, and the translation does it's job. Only little thing that might be messed up is when Google says they went out after an hour at the hotel every day in dev camp, that's not what he said. Basically, he says by the end of each practice day they were spent; it was a case of getting back and staying awake for an hour before falling asleep (for linguistics: translated as went out bacause he used the term for when a light goes out to illustrate how quickly he would fall a sleep.).

    Had a dream the other night that this was the pick that put the Sabres over the top according to Hockey "experts" after Buffalo won the cup. :laugh:

    When he talks about Reinhart, it sounded like he was saying he didn't think he seemed that great. Am I interpreting that part correctly?

    He said he didn't stand out to him, but they didn't play on the same team so he din't see him play much. Then he goes on to mention how camp was stocked with many very. very good players, so he did notice at least some players on the ice. If I remember correctly he says something along the lines of ... To be honest I have no idea how good Reinhart is, I didn't get to see him play

    All in all, I guess it reinforces the common conception that Reinhart wasn't head and shoulders above everyone else in camp and didn't stand out either way.

    Only Buffalo fans have dreams about late-round NHL draft picks.

    In July.

    I meant "draft picks" in terms of prospects recently drafted.

    You think Detroit fans are staying up at night thinking about Alexander Kadeikin?

    I meant in regards to Detroit's success in late rounds (Zetterberg, Datsyuk, etc), so if i were a wings fan my expectations would certainly be more lofty

    And Olofsson (player in question/Moskau's dreams) is just as recently drafted as Kadeykin

    It was more of a joke anyway

    I know what you meant.

    That was my point.

    My first comment was joking as well.

    The average sports fan in America doesn't pay much attention to the NHL, and even among hockey fans, most don't pay much attention to the Draft, and even among those who do, they mostly just want to know who their team's first-round pick is.

    It takes a true Buffalo die-hard to be having dreams in the middle of the off-season about a 7th-rounder who will most likely never play an NHL game.

    First game of the season and scored his first goal ever in SHL. Was a real snipe but he also missed a penalty shoot. Played nine minutes and mainly in power play.

    http://www.shl.se/shl-arena/38858/highlights/ The penatly shot at 0:55 and the goal at 1:30.

    He looks really good out there in the offensive zone. The kid has a very high skill level with the puck.
