Fantasy Summary

A modern NHL sized goaltender considered to be a technical project. He has what can’t be taught in size which will play to his advantage in the Lightning depth chart.

January 2021 – Chrona suffered what appeared to be a head injury after a collision in Denver’s 5-1 loss to North Dakota. The play looked dangerous and he exited the game, but it was noted after the game that Magnus is feeling better already. Alex Taxman
June 2020 – Chrona’s first season in North America went about as well as anybody could have hoped, as the big Swedish netminder posted a stingy 2.15 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage in 27 appearances for the University of Denver. The Lightning have the luxury of allowing Chrona time to marinate and grow at the collegiate level, so he’s likely at least a couple of years away from pro hockey. However, if Chrona can build upon his successful freshman campaign, he projects very optimistically as a future NHL netminder. Brandon Holmes
November 2019 – To this point in Chrona’s first North American season, the Swedish netminder has transitioned well for the University of Denver and is off to an excellent start for the Pioneers. Chrona has seized the starting job from incumbent Junior netminder Devin Cooley, and has posted a 2.15 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage through his first 12 games played. Chrona is a big netminder at 6’4″ and, should he continue to perform well on North American ice, will look to climb up Tampa’s depth chart as the 2019-2020 season progresses. Brandon Holmes


June 2018 – The Lightning selected their first of two netminders in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft at 152 overall with Magnus Chrona. The 6-4 Swede has the obvious benefit of his size helping him to cover more of the net, but past that his technical skills are largely undefined. His results in the Swedish junior league were excellent, but his next four to five years of development will provide a more accurate picture of what the Lightning have added to their depth chart.
