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
