STORIES

HISTORY AND HIGHLIGHTS
Spent 2011-12 season with his hometown club in Ostersund, primarily at Sweden’s second U-18 level, producing good numbers (17-7-10-17) but playing very much off the beaten path and garnering very little attention for the 2012 NHL draft … Transferred to the much more reputed HV-71 franchise in the off-season and was selected by the Red Wings with their final pick, 200th overall in the seventh round, of the 2012 NHL draft … Started 2012-13 season with HV-71 at Sweden’s J-20 SuperElit level but struggled to fit in with his new team and battled injuries (18-0-1-1, minus-4) and transferred to Tranas of Sweden’s third level for the remainder of the year (6-0-3-3, minus-5) … Joined Linkoping at Sweden’s J-20 SuperElit level in 2013-14 but battled chronic back and hip problems and missed the second half of the season (14-0-2-2, minus-3, five shots) … Showing very little since being drafted, the Red Wings opted not to sign Bodin by the June 1, 2014, deadline, relinquishing his rights.

RWC SCOUTING EXCERPTS
Six-foot-six frame and work ethic are the two things that stand out the most … Speed is also impressive for his size … Good hockey sense … Likes to play physical although he’ll need to show he can do it at a higher level without being penalized … Has grown significantly in the past two years and is still adjusting to his bigger body … Offensive upside is limited, although the Red Wings hope it just hasn’t come to the surface yet … Injury prone.

RWC SCOUT QUOTES
“For his size and age, he’s a very good skater — he’s not awkward like some guys are that age when they get big. He’s got good speed and he really works hard all the time. He plays with good intensity and he works, he works, he works … At this point, I would say I’m hoping he becomes a bigger version of (current Red Wings forward) Justin Abdelkader, a guy who works hard, uses his body and is a useful guy for the team.” — Red Wings director of European scouting Hakan Andersson (June 2012) … “The last game I saw him, he looked like a slower skater than when I drafted him. I can’t see us signing him. There’s no progress. It’s a seventh-rounder that didn’t go well.” — Andersson (January 2014).
