    • Nikita Tryamkin played in 1 game in the KHL this past week
      notching 1 shot on goal, 4 PIM and still saw his ice time decrease.

      goal.  His ice time also decreased.  Talking to one of our SHL contacts, he noted that Forsling is very good in the offensive zone and on the power play.  Forsling and Mikael Wikstrand are the best prospects in this regard, but Forsling is not as strong overall or mistake-free on the breakout.
