There must be something about the ice in Sweden that brings out the aggressive tendencies of past and future Detroit Red Wings.

A couple of weeks ago, Marco Kasper of Rogle, Detroit’s top pick in the 2022 NHL entry draft, was assesed a match penalty. He was called for blasting the head of ex-Red Wings forward Mathias Brome of Orebo into the glass.

This week, it’s another former Red Wings forward, Christoffer Ehn, who’s doing time for a match penalty infraction. Just 85 seconds during a game between Linkoping and Brynas, Linkoping’s Ehn was assessed a match penalty for kneeing Brynas’ Hannes Bjorninen.

Ehn spent two seasons with Detroit from 2018-20, producing 5-8-13 totals in 114 games.

Speaking of Kasper, referees were assessing him an abuse officials infraction in Rogle’s most recent game.
