June 2019 – Ahl did not receive an entry level contract from the Senators which means he becomes a free agent.  Jokke Nevalainen

April 2019- The offence just wasn’t there this year for Ahl, finishing at less than half a point-per-game for his junior team in Sweden. It seems unlikely that Ahl has much fantasy impact in his future at the NHL level. Jordan Deshane

December 2018- The 2015 fourth-round-pick has yet to find his offensive spark in Sweden’s Junior leagues.

June 2018 – Ahl decided to return home to Sweden for 2017-18, suiting up for Örebro HK in the SHL at the start of the season. But he struggled to find consistency and a regular slot in the lineup.

At the end of November he was loaned to BIK Karlskoga in the Allsvenskan where he managed to find his groove playing top-six minutes. Ahl finished second on the team with 11 goals and chipped in four helpers. Looking league wide, Ahl finished tied for 12th in goals among U24 players and 15th in points-per-game with 0.52.
