The SHL playoffs are not going well for the NY Rangers prospects, Just one day after Adam Edstrom, Oliver Tarnstrom, and Rogle won to fend off a 3-0 series hole, Karl Henriksson and Froluna lost again, putting themselves in a 3-1 series hole. By the weekend, we could see both teams eliminated from the SHL playoffs.
Karl Henriksson was bumped up to the top line yesterday for Frolunda, and immediately contributed with an assist in Frolunda’s 5-4 win. The Rangers clearly see something in Henriksson, signing him to an ELC despite the transfer agreement ensuring Henriksson would return to the SHL. The concern is with his scoring line, and that may not translate to future NHL success. But he does play a solid two-way game. We will know more once he comes over from the SHL, hopefully next season.
Karl Henriksson notched an assist in Frolunda’s 6-4 win yesterday, giving him a line of 3-5-8 in 25 games this season. The line isn’t overly pretty, but Henriksson is still relied upon in a middle six role for Frolunda, which is worth noting. The Rangers signed him to an ELC and brought him over for camp, something that shows the Rangers see something in the prospect. He’s not a high level kid, but he still has a chance to be an impact player in the NHL.
Only Karl Henriksson was in action for the NY Rangers prospects yesterday, notching 10:48 TOI in a 1-0 loss. Henriksson doesn’t really have a good stat line this year, but believe it or not he’s one point away from his career high in the SHL. Henriksson lost a ton of development games though, missing half of the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons due to Covid. The Rangers signed him to an ELC, so they clearly see something valuable here.
Adam Edstrom (6th, 2019) and Karl Henriksson (2nd, 2019) had a NY Rangers prospects showdown in the SHL, with Edstrom’s Rogle topping Henriksson’s (and Joel Lundqvist’s) Frolunda 4-3. Edstrom notched a goal in the contest, and Henriksson had an assist. Both are kids to watch as the season progresses. Another...
Karl Henriksson contributed two assists in yesterday’s 5-2 win over Timra. The assists were his first two of the season, and he now has three points in seven games. Matt Rempe was also in action yesterday, with 15 PIMs in a 5-3 win. SHL. Adam Edstrom (Rogle) 5 GP, 2...
Although the New York Rangers signed Karl Henriksson to his entry-level contract this past spring, he will once again be playing back at home in Sweden this season. Among the training camp cuts Monday came news that the Rangers had loaned the skilled center to the SHL’s Frolunda HC, the organization with whom he has spent the past five seasons. Henriksson, the Rangers' 2019 second-round pick, will have to wait another year to make his North American debut.
