CBJ prospect and 2017 fourth-round selection Emil Bemström became the youngest player to lead the SHL in scoring with 23 goals.
Bemström accomplished this feat in 47 games and with only 13:46 minutes of ice time per game. To put this into perspective, Joakim Nygård who came in second with 21 goals played in 5 more games and saw almost five more minutes on the ice per game than Bemström.
This would be a significant accomplishment for any player in the SHL, but at only 19 years of age and in his rookie season, Bemström shocked the SHL.
With 23 goals, Bemström tied Peter Forsberg and Patric Hörnqvist for the third most goals in SHL history as a 19-year-old, while potting one less than Vancouver's Elias Pettersson did last season.
Congratulations, Emil Bemström.
Don't expect to see Bemström in the US anytime soon though, as his team is expected to make a deep run in the SHL Playoffs. Djurgarden's first playoff game is against Skelleftea on Saturday, March 23rd.
