He represented Sweden in international play for the first time — skating for the U18 team at the 2014 World Junior Championship in Finland.

He appeared in four games on loan to Oskarshamn in Allsvenskan and played for the Sweden U20 team at the 2015 World Junior Championship. Averaging under three minutes of ice time in the regular season, he had an even plus/minus with no points and 2 penalty minutes in six games as Frolunda finished second.

Ehn was an assistant captain for the Frolunda U20 team. He scored 11 goals with 7 assists and was +15 with 2 penalty minutes in SuperElit play.
Ehn thinks the game well and is very sound defensively. He has a big frame that will take time to fill out. He is a two-way centerman, though the offensive side of his game is still very much a work in progress. Ehn skates well for a player his size.
Ehn played at three levels of hockey in Sweden in 2015-16, playing for the Frolunda men's team in the SHL and it's U20 club as well as skating for Karlskoga in Allsvenskan. He also played in his second World Juniors tournament with the Sweden U20 team. A consistent scorer at the junior level, he continues to work on his overall game at the men's level and steadily saw more ice time playing in the SHL for Frolunda. The Red Wings have yet to sign Ehn to an entry-level contract and can afford to be patient as they can wait until June 2018 before relinquishing his rights. Ehn's size and scoring ability suggest he could be a steady second or third line forward in the future.
