Edmonton Oilers has signed a 26-year-old Swedish freelancer, Joakim Nygard, in an NHL contract, although details of the deal have not yet been released, according to Twitter reports.
Joaim Nygard was interested in more than NHL 20 teams after finishing the most successful season with SHL's Farjestads BK Karlstad, but decided to sign a contract with Edmonton Oilers. The left-handed pitcher who played 52 games scored 35 points (21G, 14A) in the 2018-19 season and finished third overall with Farjestads BK Karststad. Though you did not expect it, Nygard's 21 goals were actually second in SHL goals scoring. Emil Bemstrom of Blue Jackets Emil Bemstrom was only 23 years old in the future. For those who are generally attacking and buzzing, Euler has a low risk for those who are potentially likely to play here early next year.
So who is Joakim Nygard and how did the Oilers see him?
Swedish people watching scout. "Nigaard is a very fast, seasoned worker, a smart player, run up and down the ice, and do not expect big points from the NHL and you can punish penalties." #waterproof Nigard

At an elite prospect, a friend of the country, Uffe Bodin recently wrote about Nygard's game his next team might expect from him:
"The goal of making pay-free agents interesting to more than 20 NHL teams is most likely, but it's really his ability to play the perfect 200-foot game that can be a regular league in the next season's league.
Speed is the key word. Joakim Nygård is not currently the fastest player in SHL. He owns a foot speed that can overwhelm his opponent, putting it in a dirt pile, and applying pressure to his apron and back seat. Carl Hagelin will surely be compared. In his early career, speed was the only asset Nygård actually enjoyed. Thanks to his hard work and good school, he was able to create a great game around that foundation. "
As rumors began to circulate that Nygard would come to North America, TSN's Darren Dreger said:
"He is a 26-year forward who has done a good year in the Swedish hockey league with Farjestad, and his agent, Matt Keator, has been interested in the NHL in several clubs for months. To be honest, they are keen on both of them, and the general manager of the NHL went to Sweden when they wanted to look different, compared to Carl Hagelin, who said GM could not let this guy fly Interesting and charming about Joakim Nygard is the fact that he must sign a one-year contract for a year at the age of 26, so it's almost the same as a one-year test drive, see how he plays in the National Hockey League, I think I will play in the NHL next year. "
Why Edmonton? The answer goes back to EP's Uffe Bodin.
I think I have a winner.
My theory is that Nygård chose Euler because it provided a better opportunity to create the opening day camp. And I believe he likes Ken Holland's employment very much. https://t.co/6VgNxhFT4a

Obviously, we will have to wait for this signature to proceed and Nygard to bring it to the table. But on the blog, I think this is a dangerous addition. Come in and find a way to contribute. Given how Euler's depth chart is on the left, the reality will be that he will have the opportunity to come in and sit down and see how he performs in the training camp. I mean, there does not seem to be much competition with him on the left. Either way, we think that we can all agree that Oerlus should add more speed to the roster. According to all reports, Nygard is burning enough. And it will be welcomed to the team members. slow.
