EDMONTON, AB - Oilers defence prospect Philip Broberg went airborne to score a highlight-reel goal during Swedish Hockey League exhibition action on Friday.

The 19-year-old blueliner channeled his inner Bobby Orr to give Skelleftea AIK a 1-0 lead against IF Bjorkloven en route to a 2-1 overtime victory. Broberg, selected eighth overall by the Oilers at the 2019 NHL Draft, scored one goal and seven assists in 45 games with Skelleftea last season.

He spent a month with the Oilers this summer as part of the team's Return To Play roster and, after the Qualifying Round loss to Chicago, was loaned to Skelleftea on Aug. 20.
