It appears that despite rough seasons last year, Oscar Lindberg and Jesper Fast have found their stride to open the SEL season. Lindberg, already off to a hot start, scored a goal and added two assists in Skellefteå AIK’s 5-2 win. Those three points give Lindberg a line of 2-5-7 in just five games in the low-scoring SEL.
As for Fast, the touted prospect is still recovering from a gruesome ankle injury last season. But that didn’t stop him from scoring twice in HV71’s 5-3 win last night. That gives Fast three goals in five games to open the season.
Fast and Lindberg were the only two prospects in action last night. After jump, you can see their scoring lines from last night.
- Jesper Fast; HV71/SEL: 2 G, 0 A, +2, 2 SOG
- Oscar Lindberg; Skellefteå AIK/SEL: 1 G, 2 A, +1, 5 SOG
