Note: Carl Hagelin Is A Draw In Sweden

At the Swedish Newspaper Expressen, Mattias Ek notes that over 6,000 came to see Carl Hagelin’s SSK team yesterday and that Hagelin, a Swedish native, is the main reason why.

He  says that Hagelin, being a native of the town and someone who was brought up through the junior system, is part of the reason that he is drawing bigger crowds to SSK games.

He adds, “Carl Hagelin’s speed is needed in Madison Square Garden and it is of course a crucial difference in Sweden’s second highest league. Hagelin has five goals and six assists in seven games, and it goes well for SSK again.”
