Played his first games (23) in Sweden's elite league in January with the top team, HV 71, scoring six points (3-3--6) to finish third among junior-aged players playing in the League.
Had 20 points (10-10--20) playing for the HV 71 Junior team and was a key player on Sweden's Under-18 team at the IIHF World Championships -- he tied for the team lead in points with eight (4-4--8) in six games.
It was kind of touching. I didn't know really what to expect. I'm very appreciative and thankful for the people that supported me in my time here ... as I said, we'll move back to the area at some point in our life.
