A Detroit Red Wings prospect will be lifting the SHL championship trophy. By pushing past Rogle, Albert Johansson’s Farjestad will be clashing with Pontus Andreasson’s Lulea.
Via a 5-4 overtime victory, Frajestad and Johansson (60th overall, 2019), were eliminating defenseman William Wallinder (32nd overall, 2020) and Rogle in Game 6 of their semfinal series.
