The Calgary Flames would have to the eye as the defender of the HV71 from Jonkoping Johannes Kinnvall, and it could bring in North America sooner than later.
At a press conference Friday, the general manager Brad Treliving revealed that his team was finalizing the transfer of an player from sweden. The journalist of the network Sportsnet Elliotte Friedman has immediately made the link with Kinnvall, who had been invited to the development camp of the Flames last year.
The rear of 22 years is evolving in Ligue elite Swedish for already three campaigns and has proven to be an asset to an offensive worth this season. At 51 parties, the right-hander has tallied 11 goals and 29 assists for 40 points, a total that places him second among all defenders in the circuit.
Kinnvall has also done well defensively, showing a differential of +5, and not visiting the dungeon for only eight minutes in 2019-2020.
