Blackhawks Prospect Carlsson Continues To Impress At WJC

The World Junior Championship moves on to the semifinals on Wednesday, when the United States will face Russia and Canada will host Sweden. Both medal round games are on Thursday.

Here are updates on the Blackhawks prospects at the World Junior Championship.

Lucas Carlsson

The only Hawks prospect still alive in the tournament, Carlsson has one goal and two assists in five games for Sweden. He has put nine shots on net from the blue line.

Mathias From

From scored twice – both gorgeous goals – on only four shots in three games for Denmark. He missed action early in the tournament because of an ankle injury but came back strong with an impressive performance. From skated 19:14 in Denmark’s 4-0 elimination loss to Russia on Monday.

Radovan Bondra

Bondra was held without a point in five contests for Slovakia. The Slovaks had a terrible tournament (1-3-0 in the round robin); they were outscored 22-9 in their five games, including two shutout losses. Slovakia was held to six shots as a team by Canada. Sweden eliminated Slovakia 8-3 in the quarterfinal round.

  1. The NHL seems to treat Karlsson’s and Carlson’s very well. Hopefully the same goes for Carlsson’s.

  2. When you watch the clips of From you have to love the way he goes to the net with authority and is still able to slickly handle the puck and get off the shots. Nice size on him too to go along with the agility.
    Bondra is obviously a big guy, and he’s looked pretty good in the Blackhawks Training Festival scrimmages etc. It sounds though like there is some question about his decision making, though.
    All of these guys are pretty freaking young, so they look like they are panning out to be solid later round picks by Stan and the gang.
