No. 2 – LW Jonathan Dahlén (Timrå IK, Allsvenskan)

So, things aren’t going so well for Timrå. Already down 1-0 in the promotion series, they find themselves on the brink of elimination and being sent back to the Allsvenskan next season. In three games this week, Timrå only won once. The series is 3-1 for Karlskrona, so it is make or break for Jonathan Dahlén and his team.

In those three games, Dahlén picked up four points, including a pair of goals. Ryan Biech has the GIF for one of them.

Dahlén is doing everything in his power to push Timrå over the top. Despite Karskrona being the worst team in the SHL this year, the series is showing how difficult promotion can be. We will have to wait and see how this team fares in the face of adversity. Who knows? Maybe Karlskrona struggles to close out the series.

I’m sure the Canucks are keeping a close eye on Dahlén. The team does have one more recall for the season, so if Timrå is eliminated, Dahlen could be brought to Vancouver. Or even better, join the Comets on their playoff run.
