The Future Is Bright For Simon Edvinsson

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Edvinsson is similar in size to Seider, standing 6 feet 5 and 207 pounds. That's an advantage, especially for young players, making it less likely opponents try to intimidate them as they adjust to the NHL. Edvinsson is highly skilled, too. He's enjoying a really good season with Frölunda, with whom he has one goal and 10 assists after 18 games. He has played as much as 25 minutes some nights, and averages about 20 minute of ice time. That’s an impressive pace for an 18-year-old in his first full season in the SHL.
