A finn poster on hf said you'll love his clean hard hits.
Can't wait to see if he's a baller. We won't know til he suits up against NHL competition and speed.

All I could find, was a draft ranking for 2013. He was listed 115th among European skaters. Pretty much bottom of the barrel.

For comparison..
That's below Tobias Lindberg. (That guy stuck in Wilkes-Barre, that Las Vegas sent over during the Brassard trade)
A year later, Bengtsson goes 45th on that list.

Seems to have done okay for various Finnish teams. Looks to me like staff taking a chance on (yet another) undrafted player. Must've seen something they liked.





Also, I hear he's a natural fighter...

... even if it is against coughing. :roll:
