Red Wings Daily: Johansson One-Timer Propels Farjestad To SHL Playoff Victory

A powerful Albert Johansson one-timer provided the difference in Farjestad's 2-1 victory over Rogle in Game 2 of their SHL semifinal series.

It’s a certainty that there will be a Detroit Red Wings defensive prospect skating in the Swedish Hockey League final. Albert Johansson might not be the one that people were expecting to be that guy.

A powerful Johansson one-timer in late going of regulation time ended up providing the difference in Farjestad’s 2-1 victory over Rogle in Game 2 of their best-of-seven SHL semifinal series. With just 2:27 remaining in the third period, Johansson (60th overall, 2019 NHL entry draft) stepped into a shot at the top of the faceoff circles and drove the puck home.

The result leaves Farjestad up 2-0 on Rogle, last season’s SHL finalists and the team of Red Wings defensive prospect William Wallinder (32nd overall, 2020). Former Red Wings forward Jacob De La Rose scored twice for Farjestad in their 4-3 Game 1 triumph.

The other semifinal between Frolunda HC and Lulea is continuing on Tuesday. They are deadlocked 1-1 through two games. Lulea forward Pontus Andreasson, who will be signing as a free agent with the Red Wings following the season, is going to be sitting out the second game of a two-game suspension for an illegal check to the head on Frolunda scoring leader Ryan Lasch in Game 1.

Defenseman Simon Edvinsson (6th overall, 2021) is an uncertain starter due to illness. Forwards Elmer Soderblom (159th overall, 2019) and Theodor Niederbach (51st overall, 2020) will be suiting up for Frolunda.

Hot Red Wings

Recalled from AHL Grand Rapids, center Chase Pearson is +1 in two Detroit games so far. That’s making him one of just three Red Wings with a positive rating in plus/minus this season.

Cold Red Wings

Detroit has been outscored 284-213 in the third period during the 2021-22 campaign.

What a shot by Johansson! Clutch. The Wings most NHL ready prospect on defense.

Gordon Cheswick

I know Johansson is ready for AHL- and shortly the NHL. Playing like he has makes him my #1 prospect – because he is ‘ready’

Chase Pearson +1 when DRW is out scored 10-1 – I would say the player should be left up to learn the NHL. After all, he is 25 years old. If SY and Blashill. don’t want him – let him go. He’ll play on another team!

Johansson seems the best prospect the Wings have. Plenty of Swedish ink on him and how he has impressed the likes of Lidstrom and Kronwall etc. Some said he needed to bulk up. But no. He’ll be in the LCA next year. Wings D will take a big positive step starting next year. That ought to help the Forwards some too.
