Read: Carl Hagelin Is Happy He Wasn’t Allowed To Play In The AHL

Tonight Carl Hagelin makes his debut for his hometown team in Sweden.

Hagelin, due to waiver restrictions, was not allowed to play in the AHL this season and he told a Swedish paper that he is happy it worked out that way.

“At first I thought it was the AHL applicable. It was nice that it was not so. You do not want to down there, because you never know if you get stuck. This is for my development too and SSK was the best option.”
