CHL Import Draftees

The Hockey News examines the top incoming Import Draftees headed to the CHL.

The article can be found here.

Simon Olsson, C – Chicago Steel (USHL): At 5-foot-8, 170 pounds, there isn’t a lot more to Olsson other than his blinding offensive skills. The transplanted Swede was nearly a point-a-game player for the Steel this year, with 56 in 57 games. The P.E.I. Rockets will have to pry him away from the WCHA's Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks, however, as Olsson committed to the NCAA school back in March. Draft eligible in 2009.
Having seen Olsson play, I can safely say he should impress in PEI. A very talented, shifty player who can put up points in bunches.

Ballhype: hype it up!
