Silfverberg Wins Swedish Elite League MVP
The good news just keeps coming, as today Sens prospect Jakob Silfverberg was named MVP of the Swedish Elite League. Silfverberg, who plays from Brynas IF, was 2nd in league scoring with 24 goals and 54 points in 49 games this season. He is currently in the midst of the SEL playoffs, but there's a small possibility that he could come over to join the Sens for the playoffs if his team in Sweden is knocked out by then. I've seen Silfverberg play in training camp and he is definitely NHL ready, so pencil him in the top 6 for the 2012-13 season. At just 21, the future looks very bright for the Sens and Jakob. Congratulations on the massive honor.
