The Swedish Mattias Norlinder is considered by many as one of the most beautiful hopes of the Montreal canadiens in defensive.
The stylish left-hander is endowed with qualities offensive undeniable, particularly in his ease on skates and its ability to deliver skillfully the puck to his teammates.
Its performance and statistics of the last season, at the club of MODO in Sweden, he won several accolades, including the nickname “P. K. Subban Swedish”.
Despite the long break caused by the pandemic, Norlinder seems not to have lost his many skills on the ice.
During a recent drive on the Old Continent, where the players practiced the barrage, the rear served as a feint, masterful to the custodian of the Rangers, Henrik Lundqvist, leaving the latter completely stunned.
A maneuver that is reminiscent of the finest years of a certain Peter Forsberg…
In 34 games with MODO last season, Mattias Norlinder has collected 18 points, including seven goals.
