Fantasy Summary

An offensive winger with very good all-around game and top-six potential. A great skater with great hands and a good shot.

August 2023 – Magnusson will again play for AIK in the HockeyAllsvenskan as his contract is up at the end of the 2023-24 season. He will really need to show the Capitals brass that he is a worthwhile prospect to invest in, and that will come through if he outproduces his previous seasons. Pat Quinn


May 2023 – Magnusson wrapped up his 2022-23 season with 16 points in 52 games, his best point total in a full season with the HockeyAllsvenskan. Playing in six playoff games he had no points. Magnusson still has a bit of development to go as he is lackadaisical in his own end and really should be scoring more to line up with the skill he possesses. There may be quite a bit of wait still for Magnusson to make the NHL. Pat Quinn


February 2023 – Magnusson is playing full time with AIK in the HockeyAllsvenskan with no time going to the J20 or any international play. His offense still has not broken out in the tier two league as he just has 16 points in 48 games, which is a slightly better ppg pace than the previous season. He is tied for eighth in points on the team and really is used as a secondary scoring option. His skill is evident but he still needs more time to breakthrough before he can be considered a skilled scoring winger in the future for the Capitals. There is still plenty of time. Pat Quinn


September 2022 – Magnusson was always going to be a project and his first year in the HockeyAllsvenskan showed that, with him having 11 points in 41 games for AIK. He will return there for 2022-23 where he hopes to get added ice time and scoring responsibility. Magnusson suited up for Sweden in the August WJC 2022 where he had two points in seven games, and played up and down through L2 to L4. In the offense zone he is a smart player who can set up plays, but transition and play in his own end needs to improve. They will as he fills out more and gain additional confidence. There is top six skill here but it will be a long-term development required for this player. Pat Quinn


January 2022 – Magnusson has only six points in 21 games for AIK in Sweden’s HockeyAllsvenskan league. The low numbers are not overly concerning as he is playing in the bottom six and playing well defensively. He gets some 2PP time but he really is not put in a role to score consistently but instead chip in when he can. The offensive ability is there but in the stronger and older league he is held down a bit. It will take a while for him to really break out if he does not get some offensive chances soon. Pat Quinn


May 2021 – Magnusson has really bounced around the Swedish leagues this season. He started in the J20 Nationell with the Malmö Redhawks 20 posting nine points in 12 games, but he was already too good for the league. After being promoted to the SHL with the Malmö Redhawks, Magnusson had no points and minimal ice time in eight games. He was loaned to Tyringe SoSS of the HockeyEttan league, and he fit in much better there with 13 points in 24 games. He had three goals in six playoff games for Tyringe SoSS but they were eliminated, so he played in two SHL playoff games but he failed to register a point. The future is still bright for this skilled winger. Pat Quinn


October 2020 – Magnusson was drafted 211th overall by the Capitals. Magnusson is expected to spend at least two more years in Sweden before crossing the pond.  Jokke Nevalainen


May 2020 – Magnusson had a great season playing on a very mediocre Malmö J20 team that didn’t have many offensive options besides him. He was among the best under-18 players in the league and scored 22 goals and 48 points in 38 games. He also got to make his SHL debut, playing four games on Malmö’s top team. Despite playing a limited role on Sweden’s U18 team, Magnusson also had good showings in international events, especially at the Five Nations tournament played in February. Magnusson’s size may be below average but his skill-set and all-around game is definitely above average. He’s a great skater with a good combination of speed and agility. He has great hands which allow him to make some fancy plays at times. His shot isn’t overly heavy but he’s very good at changing the angle and releasing it quickly. Despite being an offensive player, he’s also pretty good defensively. He was often used on the penalty kill and didn’t look out of place there either. After signing a pro contract with Malmö, Magnusson is expected to spend most of the upcoming season at the SHL level. He’s projected to be drafted in the third round of the 2020 NHL Draft.  Pat Quinn
