Observations

November 2018 – Sandberg was placed on unconditional waivers and subsequently released by the Sharks organization. The Swedish forward has decided to leave North America and return to the SHL. The chances of Sandberg playing in the NHL anytime soon are very low at this time. Chris Legg

 

September 2018 – Filip Sandberg managed just 14 points in 45 AHL games before his season was cut short by a knee injury. Sandberg was signed last offseason after an impressive performance in the SHL playoffs. You can basically call the 2017/2018 campaign a wash as far as determining the fantasy value of Sandberg. An adjustment period should have been expected and the injury prevented us from really seeing what he can do. Another season in the AHL is a reasonable expectation for the Swedish forward. However, if he can show improvement in training camp a cup of coffee with the big club isn’t out of the question. Chris Legg 

March 2017 – Sandberg signed a two-year deal with the San Jose Sharks after an SHL championship with HV71 in the Swedish Hockey League last season. Sandberg is a smaller player but sees the ice very well and has offensive flair to his game. His skating is solid overall and has a good burst but not the top-end speed you’d like to see from a smaller forward. He’ll likely start with the Barracuda for the 2017-18 campaign and a trajectory similar to Marcus Sorensen is likely the best case scenario for the small Swede. Zachary DeVine
