Observations:

 

June 2014 - Aberg moved from the second tier Allsvenskan to the top tier Swedish Hockey League this season and he didn't miss a beat. Aberg finished second in team scoring for Farjestads with 31 points in 52 games. Following his season Nashville signed him to a three year entry level contract giving Aberg the chance to showcase his skill on North American ice next season. Donesh Mazloum


July 2013 - Following a last place showing in the 2011-2012 SEL season, Pontus Aberg and Djurgardens were relegated to the Allsvenskan. Despite disappointing for the team, the move into Sweden's second tier league was beneficial for Aberg as he was given a greater role on the team. Aberg finished the year as the leading scorer for Djurgardens with 12 goals and 40 points, good enough for twelfth in league scoring. Aberg is a shifty skilled forward and is one of Nashville's best offensive prospects. He is still at least a year away from the NHL, however, as he has stated his intention to finish the last year of his contract in Sweden with Farjestad of the SEL. Donesh Mazloum

 

March, 2012 – Nearly draft eligible last year with a late birthday, Pontus Aberg has turned in an impressive first full season as a member of Djurgarden in the Elitserien. Unlike many other highly-touted European prospects, the 18-year-old Swede has already shown to be a reliable contributor playing in one of the top foreign leagues and is projected to be a first-round pick in June. He is a strong skater who is mature beyond his years.  - John Canario

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B -

 

A skilled, if slightly undersized playmaker who looks like a solid bet as a top-6 NHL forward.
