Observations

December 2018 – Hållander has been named to Sweden’s preliminary world junior championship roster, and is likely to be deployed on the national team’s second line. Although he’s pointless in six outings with the Swedes’ U-20 squad in international junior play, Hållander has five goals and seven assists in 22 games with Timrå IK during his first exposure to the Swedish Hockey League, the top level of hockey in the country. Mark Allan

November 2018 – The young Swede is off to an uninspiring start with two goals and five assists in 13 games – until you realize he’s a rookie in the Swedish Hockey League playing for the first time against men in his country’s best league. He has no points in three international junior appearances, however. That follows four goals and three assists in 13 such games last season, so he appears at first glance to be struggling. Plus-2 in those 13 SHL games might indicate he’s holding his own, though. He’ll remain on loan to Timrå IK as he continues to mature. Mark Allan

June 2018 – Hållander was drafted 58th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Hållander played an important role for Timrå in Allsvenskan where he scored nine goals and 20 points in 40 games. Hållander will continue playing with Timrå but at the top level next season because they earned a promotion to the SHL. Hållander was bothered by a knee injury since Christmas but he played through it. The injury made him less effective which in turn reduced his ice time late in the season. After the Allsvenskan season was over, Timrå’s medical team prevented him from playing at the U18 World Championship tournament because they wanted to make sure he’d be completely healthy for next season. Hållander has played all three forward positions but will likely be a winger at the NHL level. He’s got good size (6-2, 188), he’s good at making plays, and he can also finish them. He would be a great complementary scorer for an elite center like Sidney Crosby or Yevgeni Malkin, so landing in Pittsburgh is great for his fantasy hockey value.  Jokke Nevalainen
