After several seasons mired in Sweden’s Allsvenskan, the country’s second-highest pro league, the famed Djurgarden program of Stockholm, Sweden was back in SHL action and managed to finish ninth in the league in the 2014-15 season. This was not only a huge success in avoiding any chance of winding up in the relegation, but also of special note due to the fact that the team relied on many young, drafted players to achieve their success.

The Ottawa Senators became a competitive hockey team in the late nineties thanks in part to a handful of Swedish forwards that included Daniel Alfredsson, Magnus Arvedson, and Andreas Dackell. Now, the Senators have another trio of players developing in Sweden—and all three of them are exceeding expectations this year. Read more»

The 2014-15 SHL regular season has concluded and, as is usually the case, the cream floated to the top once the final siren rang.

Leksand and Modo were the teams at the bottom of the totem pole, so both will face-off with no less than four teams from the Allsvenskan to try to stick in the SHL. It is widely felt that Leksand, a team that came on strong at the end of the season, thanks in good part to the strong contributions of 22-year-old undrafted defenseman Linus Hultstrom (10-23-33 in 48 games), will have little problem dominating this relegation round. But Modo’s squad will have its work cut out for it, despite having added Donald Brashear and then Marcel Hossa after losing William Nylander to Toronto Marlies. Read more»
