History

Persson has yet to make any kind of significant impact in Sweden after the Flames went off the board to nab him in the 5th round in 2002. Currently playing in Norway, Persson seems a long way away from the NHL.

 

Talent Analysis
An enigma to say the least, the Flames two Scandinavian scouts insisted he was a diamond in the rough at the 2002 draft table. So far the hulking winger is still well buried in the rough.
