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. Jokke Nevalainen
