MPS update

Edmonton Oilers top prospect Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson is playing in the SEL again this season and off to a good start.

In 3 SEL games, MPS is 1-1-2 +2 and playing about 15 minutes a night. A year ago, he played only 11 minutes a night in the Swedish Elite League and scored 7-10-17 in 50 games.

Svensson ranks 7th among forwards in ATOI so far this season, so it’s a good bet Timra is using him in a secondary role at this time. The 6.01, 200 pound left wing scored a terrific goal scorer’s goal in a league game earlier this week.

    Found a video of his goal:

    (sorry not sure on how to put the link in correctly)

    LT: Are there any chances that MPS could play as an Oiler this year?

  2. loudog says:

    bookie, looks like we were thinking the same thing. nice goal too.

    Deleted my link as it was much slower to load.

  4. Smarmy Boss says:

    No chance he plays for the Oilers this year. I don't think there is any need to rush this guy.

    Hey, with Jacques on the top unit and Gagner manning the Dreg Squad….On this team, anything can happen.

  6. PDO says:

    That was one hell of a release.

    Goalie wasn't even set; looked like he thought MPS was going to drive to the net. Great release, great shot, great instincts…

    Anything over 30 points and I assume we can get really excited?

    LT, did you omit the rest of the title? "MPS update: The light at the End of the Tunnel.."

  8. Lowetide says:

    PDO: Yeah, 30 points would be an excellent season and 25 would probably be average improvement (based on him playing 50 games) at a guess.

    He has nice size too, no? Drove down the ice like a guy who'll be tough to handle when he's a man.


  9. Lowetide says:

    Hockey Noob: I'm actually just prepping everyone for the doomsday post later tonight.

  10. PDO says:


    Already 6'1" (or 6'2", depending where you look) and 200 lbs.

    That speed is deadly, and the release is quick.

    I don't think it's in his game, but if he can be a bit of an asshole too at 6'2" and 200 lbs, he's going to send more than a few D onto the IR….

  11. Boondock says:

    The nice thing about MPS is that even if he doesn't end up a high-end offensive guy, he has alot of tools to still contribute…. which is more than you can say for the Schremp, Nilsson and Eberle's of the world.

  12. flamingpavelbure says:

    Boondock: Don't think they were drafted for anything else than theyr offensive abilities.

  13. Bruce says:

    This one is pretty nifty too.

  14. Rick says:

    So, what are the chances they let MPS rot in the AHL when he comes over from Sweden because he can't play defense? ;)

  15. Smytty777 says:

    MPS with another goal and assist today. I believe he is now:

    4GP 2G 2A +3

    Decent start to the season for him which is good to see.
