Per the Predators website:
“Nashville, TN – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Monday that the club has signed free-agent forward Victor Ejdsell to a two-year, entry-level contract.
Ejdsell, 21 (6/6/95), was named Swedish second league (Allsvenskan) most valuable player and forward of the year in 2016-17 after leading the league in points (25g-32a-57pts), tying for second in assists, and for third in goals.
The 6-foot-5, 214-pound center split time with Farjestad’s junior and Swedish Hockey League clubs is 2014-15 and 2015-16, captaining the junior squad in 2014-15.”
This kid looks very promising. I am hearing that even at 6’5″ and 214 lbs he plays with the speed and skill of a smaller player. There is also a rumor that he was deciding between the Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings and Nashville. They say he visited Nashville during Game 4 against Chicago and that atmosphere made up his mind.
