OptionalPants Posted December 18, 2016 Share Posted December 18, 2016 Just a quick question for anyone who follows the swedish league closer then me (which is just about not at all). I was always a fan of Henrik Tommernes back when he was Canucks property and was a little disappointed he left to Sweden before he ever got a shot in the NHL (not too fussed but it would have been nice to see him play). However, I was searching up his stats just a few minutes ago and just from a statline point of view he looks very impressive. He is actually leading his team in points. He is just about a point per game as a defenceman in the Swedish league, so I have a couple of questions from that: Is Tommernes still Canucks property or is he a free agent? Do defencemen who preform well in the Swedish league ever manage to transition to the NHL? I can think of a few forwards who did so, but no defence come to mind? Basically, is Tommernes recent success in the Swedish league a sign that he might be able to have a career in the NHL? http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=118546 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
