Axel Jonsson-Fjallby

Washington Capitals

Fantasy Summary

AJF could wind up as a steal for where he was drafted for the Capitals in the mold of Marcus Johansson, but to keep expectations within reason if he makes the Capitals he could be a middle-six forward.

Observations

June 2019 – AJF was again one of Djurgårdens’ best players in the SHL teams playoff run posting 12 points in 19 games. His regular season was forgettable after he left the Bears but his ability to again turn it on in the playoffs is very intriguing. He has committed to play in North America for the full 2019-2020 season. His speed and penalty killing ability will see him make the Capitals sooner than later. Pat Quinn

 

March 2019 – AJF has only 10 points in 36 games for Djurgårdens so far this season as the team has not used him as they did last season. In fact he usually has less ice time than before. He really should have stayed in the AHL and is likely disappointed in how he was used back in Sweden. Caps fans need to hope this season has not ruined the young Swedes confidence. Pat Quinn

 

November 2018 – AJF has decided to go back to Djurgårdens as he was not happy with his progression/development in the AHL. He put up three points in 16 games but was ultimately disappointed in his usage. AJF is hoping he can get a better opportunity back in Sweden. Pat Quinn

 

September 2018 – AJF has come to North America to play or the Bears in the AHL. He was a stand out on Sweden in the WJC and was great for Djurgårdens IF in the SHL to end the season and into that teams playoffs before they were knocked out. AJF will look to establish his game in North America and work his way on to the Bears’ top six. Pat Quinn

 

March 2018 – AJF has had his value skyrocket since the World Juniors where he was one of the top players for Sweden, and possibly the top penalty killing forward of the whole tournament. He only finished the SHL season with 16 points in 42 games, but typically played with low ice time and a defensive role. However, the SHL playoffs have been a whole different story as AJF has six points in five games, with five of those points being goals, as Djurgardens IF is on to the semi-finals. There is a chance AJF could come over to North America for the 2018-2019 season and would likely play in the AHL to start. Pat Quinn

 

December 2017 – AJF has been named to Sweden’s World Junior 2018 roster for the first time as he has improved his play in every league since the 2013-2014 season. In his previous season in the SHL he was too good for the SuperElit J20 league as he had 37 points in 32 games, and was brought up to Djurgardens (SHL) where he just had a single assist in 24 games. Young players in the SHL rarely get playing time (unless they are superstars there) but as of now AJF has eight points in 25 games. He should impress at the World Juniors if given a top six role, if not he will be a competent bottom six forward. Pat Quinn
