Sebastian Erixon is a late-bloomer. An offensive defenseman who shoots left, but plays the right side, he has spent the last three seasons with Timra of the SEL. Last year he brokeout offensively, scoring five goals and adding fifteen assists in forty-four games to lead all Timra defenseman in scoring. His breakout season clearly impressed the Canucks, who signed the twenty-one year old (he'll turn twenty-two on September 12th) to an entry-level deal last April. Based on my google searches, he's a very intriguing pick up.

Nicklas Jensen was born in Denmark, raised in Denmark, began played hockey in Denmark, and even played for the Danish national U18 and U20 teams.
But Nicklas Jensen is far more Canadian than you would think.
