History

2008-09: Marcus Sorensen split the season between the first and second U18 teams in his hometown of Sodertalje. In 18 games with the Elite League team he scored 8 goals with 9 assists and 36 PMs. Competing in Allsvenskan (second division) play he scored 10 goals with 6 assists and had 62 PMs in 18 games (including playoffs).

2009-10: Sorensen skated for Sodertalje's U18 and U20 teams as a 17-year-old and played in three international matches for Sweden's U18 national team. In 27 U20 contests for Sodetalje he scored 7 goals with 10 assists and had 54 PMs. Sorensen was the third-leading scorer for the U18 team despite appearing in just 15 of 31 games; scoring 15 goals with 27 assists. His 61 PMs were fourth most on the team. Sorensen scored three goals with the national team but did not play at the world championship tournament. He was not among the 150 European skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings but was selected by the Senators in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft.

2010-11: Sorensen made his Elitserien debut with Djurgardens in December after joining the club to compete with its U20 squad in the Super Elite league. In eight SEL games, he scored 1 goal with 1 assist and was +2 averaging 9:27 of ice-time for sixth-place Djurgardens. Sorensen skated in 31 games for the U20 team, missing time with a back injury, and scored 14 goals with 22 assists and 53 PMs. He had 3 goals and 2 PMs in four playoff games as Djurgadens won the league's bronze medal after finishing first in the North Division. Sorensen signed a two-year contract with Skelleftea in April of 2011.

Future

Sorensen is playing for Djurgardens in 2013-14. He does not appear to be a bona fide NHL prospect at this time.

During Ottawa’s rollercoaster 2009-10 season, GM Brian Murray made a number of trades, starting with the blockbuster deal that sent miscreant Dany Heatley to the San Jose Sharks. As a result, the team entered the 2010 NHL Entry Draft with just five selections. Despite that, the Senators left Los Angeles with a late-round gem who would eventually break the team’s rookie scoring record. Read more»

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 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»

The 2014-15 SHL season has made it through the holiday season and is heading down the final stretch, as roughly 75 percent of the games have been played to date. This is the time of the year when many clubs exchange a few parts, bring up juniors to fill in for injuries, and in some cases, watch as their young men represent Sweden at the WJC. Read more»

As an organization, the Ottawa Senators were able to gain invaluable experience during the recent playoff season. The NHL club exceeded most predictions and made the playoffs in what was supposed to be a rebuilding season. Many observers credited a portion of their success to a core group of young players who played a major role in the Binghamton Senators championship run in the 2010-11 AHL playoffs.
