Casper will play for the Red Wings next season

Mark Casper Are you playing for the Detroit Red Wings next season? A prominent Swedish hockey journalist and seasoned ex-pro believes a deal has already been made.

Sani Lidström writes for Expressen.se and works as an analyst on SHL broadcasts for C More, the Swedish network that carries games. He was also a Pro for 15 seasons in both Europe and North America. A fourth-round draft pick by the Colorado Avalanche, Lindstrom spent parts of three seasons in the AHL. He suited Sweden at the 2000 World Junior Championships alongside the Sedin twins.

In other words, his ratings carry a little more oomph than the average hockey journalist. And Lindström’s advice to Swedish hockey fans is to enjoy watching Casper play this season, because they won’t see him next season.

Rogle’s Mark Casper “It goes from strength to strength,” Lindstrom wrote. “Take care of yourself and have fun.

Next year, Casper will play in the NHL.

in the weekend, Casper was producing Figures 1-2-3 as Rogl beat Oskarshamn 5-4. The center who made the eighth overall pick of the 2022 NHL Entry Draft by the Red Wings also won 63.16% of his tackles. In addition, Kasper skated a career-high 21:39, the most ice time of any Rögle forward. Kasper displays a total of 6-12-18 through 34 games.

Oddly enough, these are the same totals as the current Red Wings team Lucas Raymond He was posted in 34 games with Frolunda in 2020-21, the season before breaking Detroit’s roster.

Red Wings Prospects Kasper and Wallinder Turning Heads

A physically at home defenseman during his playing days, Lindstrom also expresses fondness for the style of game played along the blue line by William Wallander. Of a 2020 Detroit second round draft pick (32nd overall), Wallinder also filled in for Rögle. He plays big minutes against the opposition’s best players, all while attacking with a team-leading 18 assists.

“William Wallender has taken on a huge responsibility at Rögle and is the most hardworking player in the SHL,” said Lindström. “[He] He behaves maturely and calmly on the ice and has developed into a really good defender who takes charge defensively, as well as leading Rögle’s attack from the back end.

Wallender is third in Rögle ins scoring, with 23 points. He skated a team-high 25:59 in the win over Oskarshamn.
