October 2017 - Werner returned to IF Bjorkloven of the Swedish Allsvenskan league, and has a 0.889 save % though 12 game so far. This is slightly worse than his numbers last year - the wrong direction for a young goaltender to go. He is still very young so has time to refine his game, but he needs to be able to handle the increased workload that he has been acclimating to for two seasons now. Hayden Soboleski
March 2017 - Based on his twitter announcement, Werner has signed a contract to stay in Sweden for 2 more seasons (2017-18 and 2018-19). The netminder is not having a strong season statistically, but is getting lots of starts as a 19-year-old which is a strong step towards long term improvement. Hayden Soboleski
December 2016 - Werner did not make the Swedish Team for the WJC. His stats and outlook were poorer than the other two goalies included on the preliminary roster, but it was a good sign that he was thought of at all. Hayden Soboleski
December 2016 - Werner has been named as one of three goalies on the Team Sweder World Juniors preliminary roster. This comes as a result of his play as a starting goalltender in Allsvenskan - Sweden's hockey league a tier below the SHL. Hayden Soboleski
Werner has entered his first year playing in Allsvenskan, immediately serving as a starting netminder. He currently holds a .901 SV%. He previouly played in the highest-tier junior league J20 SuperElit for three seasons, where he posted a 0.916 SV% in 30 games played in his final season. He has the height that is coveted in most goaltender prospects, but is still very much in the learning proess for how to use his frame to his advantage. He is very raw at this point, but also very young, so his ability to handle the starter's role is more notable than the long list of technique work that is still to be done.
