March 2019 – After two full SHL campaigns Friberg may have already reached his plateau. His offensive production leaves us wanting, and at 26-years-old, we may never see him return to North America for professional hockey. Although he remains under contract with Frolunda HC of the SHL for this year, the Canadiens are still holding his rights. Jesse Sherman

June 2017 – Even though Friberg signed with Frolunda of the SHL in Sweden, the Habs nonetheless tendered him a qualifying offer in order to maintain his rights. So they see enough in him that he’s worth keeping for the future. Dobber

January 2016 – Max Friberg has been traded to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for goaltender Dustin Tokarski (Jan. 7). The 23-year-old Swede will bring his passion to St-John’s where he should be heavily relied upon to contribute at both ends of the ice. Gulls coach Dallas Eakins could not say enough good things about the former WJC star, stating that his attitude and desire for success were second to none and he was always someone you can count on, especially in the shot blocking department. Friberg is a nice fit with the Habs organization, as his style of play and personality mesh well with what they do in Montreal. Not only does this bolster the Ice Caps, it may allow GM Marc Bergevin to move another young forward out, then opening the door for Friberg to get his first shot with the big club. Another injury to the Habs lineup could also provide that opportunity. Mike Barrett

December 2015- Since his return to San Diego on November 14, Friberg has one goal and six assist
