    I do NOT want to know what he's doing with his stick that the butt-end is that slick.

    Not a surprise to see him start hitting twine; his shot really jumped out at rookie camp last year among his peers.

    @SabresProspects -

    SHL Qualifier - Victor Olofsson has a goal and Gustav Possler has a helper as MODO leads Leksands IF 2-0 at the end of the 1st Period.

    SHL Qualifier - Victor Olofsson nets a pair of goals plus an assist and Gustav Possler gets a PPG and an assist as MODO defeats Leksands IF 5-0.

    Today he signed a two year contract with Frölunda so it seems he plans to stay in SHL at least one more year. He is moving from a relegation battle to one of the best clubs.

    So now I have to explain to the people in this cafe I'm in why I just let out a "**** yeah!".

    Frölunda... second best record this year in the SHL. That's a great place to see how Viktor handles more meaningful games even if he may have a smaller role. Exciting news.

    Just scored a nice goal to give MoDo a 2-1 lead in game 7 vs Leksand.

    And now he scored his second of the night, 3-1 after a great 2-on-1.

    LaxSabre - and he has two goals in the game - scored third MODO goal to give them a 3-1 lead.
    Unfortunately MODO has blown that lead and the game is now in overtime tied 3-3.

    MoDo lost in overtime, have no idea how that happened. Based on the play MoDo should have won that with like five goals but Leksand never gave up despite being outplayed, outchanced and outshot badly. Sort of like a Ted Nolan win last year.

    Someone fill me in on how it works for retaining his rights before he's a UFA? Unsure on what the agreements are with Sweden leagues and the similarities to say kids coming out of college.

    His game's slick.

    Players drafted out of Europe under the current CBA have their rights held for four years. So Olofsson's rights are held through June 1, 2018, having been drafted in 2014.

    They can sign him and loan him back right? So it doesn't have to be about him coming over if they are happy with him developing over there. That's a good league he's in.

    Olofsson was rumored to be jumping to a better SHL team earlier in the year (Possler too), so the relegation to Allsvenskan for Modo probably seals that transfer if he doesn't come over to NA yet.

    Forsberg sure as hell wasn't happy with blowing a 3-1 lead:

    Ok thanks. So his new 2 year deal will take him right up to the couple months prior to June. 1, 2018.

    Works for me. Layer all these kids out, ones ready to contribute..one wants to too much money for our structure.

    Yes, he could be signed and loaned back to a European club. Linus Ullmark was signed and loaned back to MODO just last season. Of course, in Ullmark's case, he was drafted under the previous CBA which meant his rights were only held for two years. With the longer window under the current CBA, there's less reason to sign and loan a player to Europe (especially for players, like Olofsson, whose contracts cannot slide).

    He signed a two-year deal with Frölunda last week, it's still possible that he'll come over to NA of course but it seems unlikely at this point. I'd actually prefer having him play in Rochester next year (with an outside shot at making the big club) over keeping him in the SHL for another season, but wanting to see how he does on one of the SHL's top teams before bringing him over certainly isn't a bad idea either.

    Now official. Olofsson signed for two years with Frölunda.

    Pretty crazy. I'd ask how you play 9 other forwards more than your leading scorer...but now I don't have to wonder how they ended up relegated.
