July 2022 – Tarnstrom skated in 27 games for Rogle BK of the Swedish Hockey League during the 2021-2022 season, posting only three goals in 11 playoff games for Rogle. Additionally, he appeared in games in the J20 Nationell league, Hockey Allsvenskan, and with Sweden’s U20 International team. Tarnstrom posted 34 points in 31 games played for Rogle J20, but clearly struggled playing against men at the SHL level. He is on Rogle BK’s roster for 2022-2023, and is signed in Sweden through the 2023-2024 season. Tarnstrom, the son of former NHLer Dick Tarnstrom, is hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps in earning an NHL contract. His signing rights with New York expire on June 1, 2024.  Brendan Ferry

 

October 2020 – The New York Rangers selected Tärnström in the late third-round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. The 18-year-old has a solid foundation of technical ability in addition to a strong aptitude for the offensive aspects of the game. His physical maturity has a ways to go, but the Rangers’ can certainly afford to let him develop overseas for at least three years. After getting his toes wet in the HockeyAllsvenskan league last year, his next milestone will be making the full step into the second-tier Swedish league with AIK where he can begin to morph into a stronger two-way player as well as elevate his strength.  Brayden Olafson
