Wow just watching these stats makes me laugh.

That is insane how even a defenseman can light it up like that in any league.

Man, what does this kid have to do to get called up to the SEL? I know he's undersized, but how much more he can learn in J20 when he's dominating like this?

Well I'm guessing it has more to do with getting more playing time in J20 than he would at the Elitserien level. I think that's best for his development right now, plus he's still growing from what the other poster said. Next season he'll definitely get his chance. This kid's gonna be awesome for us in the future imo.

I have a question though for anyone that would know. Hakan says that since he has great hockey sense, which obviously it's showing so far, that if the draft were based on hockey sense he'd be a first round pick.

With that said, what is he so bad at that warrants him one of the last picks in the draft? I know he's small but all kids are undersized and will take a little time to develop. All the weaknesses on redwingscentral.com basically say that they are fixable as he grows in size and gets stronger. Did teams just overlook him because of his size and we came away with a high valued pick?

Well I am guessing he was overlooked because I don't think he did much or anything on the national stage so its not like everyone knew of his talent and because he was small and weak. I do believe he was listed at like 136 .lbs before the draft too.

exactly!

and besides this, the hv 71 sel team is also in first place so i guess they see no need to change anything.

on wednesday he had another assist in another win. today he wasnt in the lineup. i dont know why. maybe he is injured or he may be already with the j20 national team, which participates in a 4 nation tournament in st.petersburg next week. anyway leagueplay makes a break until 14th november.

AAs season count: 13gp - 5g - 24a - 29pts

i checked it out. he is not on the roster of swedens team for the tournament. some of his teammates are and they played today. so it seems he is injured or sick.

adam finished the tournament with 2 goals in 4 games. it was a different experience for him cause opposite to his club hv71 winning all the time, team sweden lost all games and finished in last place.

back to normal work...things didn´t change....another win 4-1 and another point for adam.

Lets not go too overboard with junior statistics, however promising they may be.

The funny thing is, it didn't really start with us fans:

"Hvem blir neste svenske stjerne i Detroit?"
"Det tror jeg blir Adam Almqvist (18), en back som er veldig spilledyktig."

"Who will be the next swedish star in Detroit?"
"Hakan Andersson: I think it will be Adam Almqvist(18), back. Who knows how to play the game."

hv 71 won 5-0, adam played on the second d-pair, had no points and was +1.

stat-wise pretty ok for his debut. don´t know how he looked out there though. maybe some of our "swedish lgw-guys" can help out and give a scouting report?

He played for HV71 against Frölunda (HV continued their domination with a 3-0, still comfortably on top of the table). Not sure what his stats were, but he did take a skate to the chin and needed stitches in the first, and was back in the second. He got powerplay time, playing with former NHLers like Janne Niinimaa (741 NHL games) and Björn Melin (3 NHL games...), and was on the ice for a powerplay goal by Niinimaa.
