Hometown: Ornskoldsvik, Sweden

Drafted: 2012 by Dallas, 43rd overall








April 2013- Bystrom has wrapped up a fairly successful run with MODO J20. He had just three points in eight regular season games with the team, but really shined come playoff time. He had six points in seven games, and MODO J20 made it to the SuperElit championship, where they fell 4-3. His six points led all defensemen in the playoffs. He also logged 30 games with MODO of the Elitserien with six points, and nine games with Orebro in the Allsvenskan but zero points. Rex Doty


October 2012 – The Stars decided they wanted to control a bit of Bystrom’s development by signing him to an entry level contract then assigning him back to Modo for the current season. The Plymouth Whalers drafted him in the Import Draft this season, which is a possible destination for him next season to get acquainted with North America and play strong top pairing minutes. Jason Banks

March, 2012 – Having played against grown men in the Elitserien since 16, Ludvig Bystrom has excellent hockey smarts and is a fluid skater. The young Swede makes a good breakout pass and isn’t shy about initiating contact in the defensive zone. He lacks a blistering shot, something he will likely work on as he continues to develop his game. John Canario



Fantasy Outlook: B-

Skilled but a tad undersized, Bystrom is a good puck-moving rearguard but is unlikely to produce top-tier offensive totals.
