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.
