Jakob Silfverberg: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Out of all of the potential rookies that have a shot at making the Sens this year, Swedish forward Jakob Silfverberg arguably has the inside track at breaking camp on the roster. In fact, he could have made the team last year, but decided to return to the Swedish Elite League for another year before beginning his North American career. In the SEL, he led his team to the title and was named the MVP of both the regular season and the playoffs, potting 13 goals and seven assists in 17 playoff games. He possesses good speed and an even better shot, with the ability to get the puck off his stick very quickly. Slifverberg is also responsible defensively and can be used on the penalty kill when needed. Should Silfverberg make the team out of camp, look for him to be used on either the first or second line and he will certainly see power-play time; fifteen goals and 20 assists are not out of the question. Silfverberg could be very valuable in keeper leagues for owners who pick him up in later rounds.
Silfverberg will spend the 2011-12 season playing for Brynas of the SEL, but is already NHL-ready in the eyes of Ottawa's management. GM Bryan Murray would love to have the 6'1", 190 pound Swede playing in Ottawa this season, but will not rush the talented winger as Silfverberg has stated on numerous occasions his desire to play one more year in Sweden before crossing the pond to North America. While he already plays a sound defensive game for a young man, he possesses an NHL-caliber shot and is a very strong skater who can punish defensemen along the boards opening up space for both himself and his linemates. Silfverberg is one of the more under-the-radar prospects not currently in the NHL, but that will likely change entering the 2012-13 season.
Silfverberg will spend the 2010-11 season playing in the Swedish Elite League for Brynas. He should make the jump to North America in 2011-12, likely starting in the AHL for Binghamton. Silfverberg is a heady, two-way player with some nice offensive upside and figures to top out as a 3rd or 2nd line player who'll also kill penalties.
Ottawa's 2nd second round pick of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Silfverberg has some nice offensive potential and is described as a hard-working, two-way forward with skill. He'll spend the year playing for Brynas of the Swedish Elite League. Silfverberg is likely two to three years away from making an impact at the NHL level.
