June 2020 – The Panthers decided not to sign Nassen to an entry-level contract before the June 1st deadline, resulting in the loss of his rights. Nassen is set to play in the SHL next season for Vaxjo Lakers HC. John Gove

April 2020 – Fantasy owners may want to move on from Nassen as he slips further and further away from a career in the NHL – well, with Florida, anyway. Keith Fries

May 2019 – Linus Nässén had a strong D+3 year in Medicine Hat pilling up 46 points (seven goals & 39 assists) in 62 games. The 6-0 defender was able to lead the way with the Tigers as an overage player while being leaned on heavily by his coach. With the option of signing with the Florida Panthers, the Swedish blueliner has opted to play with the Växjö Lakers of the SHL for the 2019-20 season. This will represent a step forward for Linus because he will have the chance to compete against older competition to continue to enhance his skill set. Nässén is a mobile defender with a decent all-around game. – Maxime Tellier
