Observations

November 2019 – Alnefelt has made the jump to pro hockey in Sweden, as the young netminder has seized a role in the SHL for HV71 and has not looked back. Through his first six professional games, Alnefelt’s numbers have been excellent, as his 1.77 goals-against average and .925 save percentage have kept pace with incumbent starter Jonas Gunnarsson. Should the 18-year-old maintain this level of play, he looks poised to see more and more playing time at the SHL level and should be considered a primary option in goal for Team Sweden at the World Junior Championships come December.

June 2019 Tampa took their first and only goaltender in the 2019 Draft in the Third Round, 71st Overall with their selection of Hugo Alnefelt. Alnefelt is a Swedish netminder who won Gold with Team Sweden at the U18 Championships, where he posted a sparkling .921 save percentage and 2.75 goals against average in five games played, however, his league play was a little less kind as he posted a .905 save percentage in 24 appearances with HV-71 in the Swedish junior ranks. With Alnefelt, you are betting on his cat-like athleticism in conjunction with good raw tools and a quick glove hand, however, consistency and control are his biggest hurdles to success. At times, Alnefelt is prone to making poor reads or tracking the puck poorly, which sometimes leaves him out of position or causes soft goals to go in from far out. If Alnefelt is smooth out the technical aspects of his game to match his high-end athleticism, there is reason for optimism that he can develop into a solid NHL goaltender. Brandon Holmes
