Week 7 Top Prospects: Pettersson, Juolevi and Dahlen

2 of 4

No. 3 – LW Jonathan Dahlen (Timra IK, Allsvenskan)

Timra IK only played one game this week, but Jonathan Dahlen absolutely dominated. In a 3-2 victory over Oskarshamn, Dahlen picked up a pair of assists and scored a goal, capitalizing on miscues from the opposition. As usual, Ryan Biech was there to give us the video of his goal. If you are not following him to track Canucks prospects, I highly recommend that you do.

Per Elite Prospects, Dahlen is currently eighth in scoring with 18 points in 13 games. Nearly every player ahead of him has played 21 games. League leader and former Canucks prospect Alex Friesen leads the league with 23 points in the aforementioned number of games. Dahlen has the second highest points-per-game rate in Allsvenskan at 1.38.

I have watched a few streams of his games and Dahlen looks like the league is too easy for him. This makes sense, considering the Allsvenskan has a lower level of competition than the SHL. For Canucks fans, we can get excited when Dahlen makes the transition to an SHL team later this year.
