this is a Mattias Sjogren picspam!! welcome our new swede!!!!!!!!!!!

The Washington Capitals have signed free agent center Mattias Sjogren to a two-year entry-level contract beginning next season, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to have Mattias join the Capitals organization,” said McPhee. “He is a big center who has developed very well over the past few seasons and is ready for a new challenge.”

The 6’2”, 214-pound center spent the 2010-11 season with Farjestad of the Swedish Elite League, recording a career-high 24 points (seven goals, 17 assists) and 44 penalty minutes in 51 games. Sjogren helped lead Farjestad to a SEL championship, registering nine points (one goal, eight assists) in 13 postseason games.

Sjogren, 23, represented Sweden at the 2011 IIHF World Championships in Slovakia, winning the silver medal while tallying four points (one goal, three assists) in nine games. He scored the game-winning goal versus USA in the preliminary round.

The native of Landskrona, Sweden has 59 points (24 goals, 35 assists) in 148 career games with Farjestad and Rogle of the SEL.

lol you may have a point with this :( i should stick to goalies, i already like a center and mostly it's only given me pain ;~;
ok questions, they say he's a center and a right winger but:

1.where does he usually play? for example with the tre kronor where do they make him play?

2.for the caps do you think he's more needed as a center or as a right winger?
he'll play as a winger more than likely for the caps but hanna can tell us more
see my comment below i'm way too lazy to do it twice lmao
what a flawless post!!!! flawless use of google!!

after the initial shock of him deciding on caps lol well, i'm excited. not just because he comes from färjestad dont tell anyone. liked him over the season, and when your team doesn't always play too much exciting hockey it's nice to have an entertaining player. he was that a lot this year

also for laura's q's on tre kronor he centered 4th line. typical swede in that he's a two way center with a lot of defensive responsibility. think he'll do that for da caps too, and why we brought him in. think he'll mostly play on the wing, but i can see him getting the role of 4th line center too. after all, he's not a signing made to go play in hershey. he's got the contract he's gotten to play for the caps and stay up
oooooooh cool!!
i'm excited to see him rocking the red!! :DDDD

lol this last one i can't
lmaooooo the last one i cannot!!

and the first one... unfffff that play!! :O

3:33 1st interview as a färjestad player (can't wait to see this but for da caps!!!)

here he scored a goal in the annual "clash of the giants" football game between färjestad and frölunda so video is mattias talking a bit on the fact that his 1st summer with färjestad has seen him eat hamburgers, sign autographs and play football lmao

godddddddddddddddddddd i need to move to sweden you people aren't normal you're all hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;~;

i'd watch him talk all day even if he speaks in swedish and i don't get a single word! unfffffffffff
