The Swedish Hockey League title secured, a gold medal dangling from his neck, Albert Johansson was already setting his sights on another objective – cracking the lineup of the Detroit Red Wings.

“I feel ready and want to go over this autumn and test my luck over there,” Johansson told Expressen.se after helping Farjestad to a 3-0 victory over Lulea in Game 7 of the SHL championship final.

The Red Wings selected Johansson 60th overall in the 2019 NHL entry draft. Signed to an entry-level contract with Detroit, he spent the past two seasons on loan to Farjestad.

This season, Johansson, 21, counted career-high 5-20-25 totals in 52 regular-season games. Posting 2-6-8 numbers in 19 playoff games, he was helping Farjestad to a surprise SHL title.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
