Regarding Albert Johansson and Gustav Berglund’s 2018-19 season ‘numbers’’s Arthur J. Regner examines Albert Johansson and Gustav Berglund’s 2018-2019 seasons “By the Numbers” this morning, and we’ll take a look at what Red Wings director of player development Shawn Horcoff has to say about Johansson:

Quotable: “Very, very good skater. Obviously at development camp I was really impressed with his edges, his balance, his stride, very, very smooth, he’s got a great glide, it’s right on top of the ice. Good offensive skills, really shifty, good puck skills, can move the puck well. But he’s another guy that’s just underdeveloped, he needs to put on strength. Still seems to be growing a little bit, but there’s good upside there offensively.” — Shawn Horcoff, Red Wings director of player development

Quotable II: “When I was very small (my favorite player) was Nick Lidstrom because he was the biggest defenseman. Down the years it was Erik Karlsson and John Klingberg. With the Swedish defensemen, I look at the offensive game. I like that.” — Johansson
