Diving into the Flyers prospect pool: A Swedish sleeper?

After diving into the depths of the SHL, we turn our attention to HockeyAllsvenskan. The Flyers have three players from their pool currently competing in the league. Here’s a brief look into their 2020 season so far.

Linus Högberg

A fifth-round pick by the Flyers back in 2016, Högberg has spent four seasons in the SHL, with his last 3 being for Växjö Lakers HC. The 22-year-old D-man had 14 points in 50 games last year, and 10 in 52 the game before. HockeyAllsvenskan is the second-tier of Swedish Hockey and it’s safe to say he’s already faring much better at that level.
