Red Wings prospect Daniel Larsson has won "Honken Trophy" as the goalie of the year in the Swedish Elite League. He started 46 of 55 games for Djurgardens IF, and finished third overall with 92,1 SV%.
- A great honour, and a confirmation that I've had a good season, says Larsson, 22, to Aftonbladet.

"Honken Trophy" is named after the Swedish goalie legend, Leif "Honken" Holmqvist (a former Red Wing) who played 202 international games for Sweden. The Swedish hockey writers association name the winner through a vote.

Kudos to Teeman for the Sig

It's extremely doubtful that he'll play for the Wings next year but hopefully they'll get him signed anyway so that he doesn't runaway. If the guy builds on his success with another good year next year and some good international performances, well, happy days.

Well, it's gonna be interesting next year if Dom retires. I'd imagine that the Wings 1/2 will be Osgood/Howard, but it really leaves us nothing semi-reliable to call up in case of injury to one of those two or, god forbid, both. They're gonna have to either sign him and have him come over to play in GR next year or sign him, leave him in Sweden, and make a free agent pick up in the offseason. I'm of the opinion that they should sign Larsson and have him come over next year to get accustomed to the North American game.

It's already set that the Wings are going to reassign him to Djurgården for '08-09.

Let's hope he is the next Henrik....


I wouldn't at mind being one of those teams that disguards a very good goaltender because we already have one and being able to pick up a little extra. E.G. Sharks turfing Toskla

Howard and Larsson FTW!

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

It makes more sense to bring him over if Howard comes up though.... I am not sure about that.

What a load of crock. He played 24 games last year, but with these weirdass rules, he was still up for the award.
