Blomstrand scored 2 goals today in Djurgardens IF's 5-4 win over Brynas in European trophy play.

If this guy can figure out his offensive game, he could be a real sleeper pick ala Jannik Hansen. He already has the wheels, grit and determination to be a solid role player. Add some offense and this guy could be a great player.

6'1" 198lb 19-year-old LW/RW with great speed and tenacity.

We hear about his size, speed and his work ethic, but what about his hockey sense? How good of a player is he defensively - does he read plays well? My hope is that he can develop into an excellent 2-way shutdown winger with some offensive upside - something of a winger version of Sammy Pahlsson.

That's his game, he's a defense first, grind it out guy who compares quite well to a bigger Hansen with more grit and less scoring. I'm excited about him and hearing that he scored 2 goals excites me a lot!

Imagine this guy and Mallet turn out to their max potential? Not a bad draft, but that's a big if.

Yeah that would be awesome! Although they were drafted a year apart, I agree with you. I'm really excited about the 2011 draft class, I think Jensen, Corrado, LaBate, Blomstrand, Grenier, and Tommernes (and maybe Honzik, I want to see him work harder this year though) all have a shot at the big leagues, no matter what role.

Wow he's huge...

Definitely is physically ready to play against men - I hope his hockey IQ is high and can read plays well defensively and have some offensive instincts or to crash the net with his size.

And he's only 19 - meaning that he is eligible to play for Sweden in the WJC. Hopefully we get to see him show his size, grit and tenacity there.

Wow he sure beefed up.. I wonder how jacked he is. I can't see him putting on that much straight muscle in one year. I hope that didn't effect his mobility.

To make this team he'll have to possess above average shutdown capabilities. Does anyone know how he is in that department? I hear about his playing style but haven't heard much about how effective he is in a shutdown role.

And to put his success in the Euro trophy to comparison, he is tied for points with Teuvo Teravainen and has 1 less game played with 2 more goals.

Sweet! Great to hear! :)
I would be so glad if he panned out as someone like a Dwight King-type, who is physical and plays an energizing style with the ability to crash and score albeit garbage goals.

Thanks man. I thought this kid was write off with all the names thrown out there, I don't think any of HF or Canucks Army top 20 had this guy ranked. I'd like to see him pan out and as someone else said 2011 is looking like a deep year.

Playing on the top line with Fredrik Vestberg and Patrik Nevalainen, Blomstrand assisted on a goal by Vestberg 10 seconds into Almtuna's tilt against the IF Malmo Redhawks today. Unfortunately Almtuna IS went on to lose the game 4-1. He also finished the game with a +1 rating and 2 shots on net.

Ludwig = 2010 draft pick
Teuvo = 2012 draft pick

Putting the comparison into perspective.

I stand corrected. Thanks.

Still, even 1 year makes a great deal of a difference at their ages.

I know, but Teuvo is considered to be a lock for being a good top 6 forward, while Blomstrand's high end potential is being a bigger, slower but grittier Hansen, so the difference in their playing styles will account for my comparing their production. Nonetheless, I think that being traded to Almtuna is probably the best thing that could have happened to him. He was a 13th forward on Djurgarden most games or a 4th liner and now he's a 1st liner on Almtuna and is producing in a similar way to how Mallet did when given a chance on a scoring line.

Blomstrand had himself a pretty good game for Almtuna today. Skating on the top line again, he scored a goal and scored the shootout winner in a 3-2 shootout win over IF Troja/Ljungby. He also ended the game with a +2 rating and 4 shots on net. Also, the Allsvenskan boxscore indicates Blomstrand had a 2 goal effort so I guess shootout goals are counted towards your overall goal total in Sweden.

yeah, Allsvenskan is basically the same league as the SEL (The two lowest ranked teams after the SEL regular season have to play in a regulation series called Kvalserien together with the top four teams from the second tier league Allsvenskan. The top two teams of Kvalserien qualify for the next Elitserien season, while the other four are demoted to Allsvenskan.) so they record everything the exact same way.

Chalk up another uneventful game for Blomstrand. He had no points, 2 shots on goal and was even on the night for Almtuna IS in a 3-2 loss to Sodertalje SK. He remains on the top line with Fredrik Vestberg and Daniel Hermansson.
