Scouting Report
The Swedish winger is in his 30s but still has the skating and offensive skills that attracted NHL teams more than a decade ago. He is a smart, talented playmaker whose game away from the puck has improved over the years. He makes the kind of little plays that fans miss but coaches love. A lack of size and strength have always been his biggest issues, so playing with bigger linemates is a good idea.
Long Range Potential: Mature two-way winger.
