Johan Samuelsson, Falun
Freshly transferred from Tigers Langnau, Switzerland, to Falun, Sweden. The world-class center has the potential to take a leading role in the already star-packed line-up of Falun after a relatively weak final season in Switzerland.

Adam Colling, Falun
Another Falun transfer. Adam Colling has an impressive production list averaging 2 points per game in the SSL and 3 points per game in the Allsvenskan with the relatively weak club Karlstad. The question now is: what can he do with world-class teammates?

Alexander Galante Carlström, Falun
Some injury troubles prevented Alexander Galante Carlström from taking down the individual point league for the last season. His goal is clear, taking back the point league winner trophy from…

Albin Sjögren, Storvreta
Albin Sjögren won the point league season 2017/2018 and will do everything in his power to take it again. However, history shows that it’s incredibly hard to win it two years in a row, especially with Alexander Galante Carlström breathing in your neck.

Otto Weidman, Jönköping
Jönköping was a pleasant surprise in the last season. The team didn’t start too well but almost made it to the playoffs thanks to dedication and excellent teamwork. Otto Weidman, Sweden’s U19 captain, played a crucial role in the team and is on his way to becoming a leading figure in Sweden’s next generation superstars. He is a strong, allround, hardworking center and can be compared to Johan Samuelsson. Last season, he gathered 35 points in 32 games. With only 20-years old, his way is only up.

Tim Braillard, Mullsjö
A Swiss superstar has entered the Swedish SSL. It’s always a guess what to expect from a player from a foreign competition and we couldn’t be more excited. Let’s hope he makes it to a lot of our highlight reels!

Kim Nilsson, Kalmarsund
No list without Kim Nilsson. One of the carrying players in the Swedish national team, the tall forward finally made it to the SSL with FBC Kalmarsund. Undoubtedly he will make it up high in the leaderboards. The question is: how high?

Omar Aldeeb, Falun
Took the SSL by storm when he made a transfer to the first team of Falun in early 2017. Since then, he has become a solid centerpiece in Thomas Brotmann’s squad.

Gustav Fritzell, Pixbo
Made an excellent impression in the Swedish national team and is now playing for Pixbo Wallenstam. The forward is an exciting prospect and an outsider to winning the Swedish point league.

Alexander Rudd
After a weak season, Alexander Rudd is looking forward to a fresh start. After a recurrence of his concussion and an unfortunate DUI incident, the star center is a player you want to be watching. Can he shine like before and make it to the Swedish WFC2018 troop?
