This season hasn’t been what Axel Jonsson-Fjällby had hoped for at all. We have been over it several times already, with only two games left until the SHL playoffs, the goal column was blank. Until tonight – where Jonsson-Fjällby had himself a night to remember, netting a goal and also an assist in Djurgården’s 7-1-win against Mora.

According to SHL insider Petter Rönnqist, Djurgården has worked a lot with Jonsson-Fjällby’s confidence and mental game. Head coach Robert Ohlsson has also given “the Hunter” frequent playing time in a decent role, even though things haven’tworked perfectly. Today he finally paid back on the score sheet.

“The staff has told me to shoot more, I have been trying to that, and it feels great that it paid off tonight. Even if it took a while to get that goal, it feels wonderful. In the upcoming playoffs every one of us needs to chip in, and I hope to do that, Jonsson-Fjällby said to TV broadcaster CMORE after the game.

Other then the goal, Jonsson-Fjällby was given another goal, which unfortunately for him, turned out to be a deflection. Regardless, today brought a much-needed confidence boost which hopefully takes his game to the next level going in to the end of the season.

    Caps nation wishes Good Things for AJF! Sometimes it takes years of seasoning.
    Meanwhile: Future Hall of Famer #22 in Detroit is a scratch tonight, and that is even with ex-Cap Mike Green out for the season with a lingering virus.
