Prospect Round-up: Larsson, Eliasson lose in Sweden; Cotton 2G in WHL

Of Red Wings-related prospect note in Europe on Wednesday:

In the Finnish Liiga, Eemil Viro was absent from TPS Turku’s 3-1 loss to KooKoo as he’s going to Canada with the Finnish World Junior Championship team;

In the Swedish Allsvenskan, Filip Larsson stopped 18 of 22 shots in HV71 Jonkoping’s 4-3 shootout loss to Mora IK, who remain without Albin Grewe (concussion);

In HockeyEttan, Jesper Eliasson stopped 26 of 29 shots in Vasby IK’s 3-2 loss to Mariestad BoIS;

In the scheduling department, we know when Frolunda HC (Simon Edvinsson, Theodor Niederbach and Elmer Soderblom) and Rogle BK (William Wallinder) will tangle in the Champions League’s semifinal games:

The games consist of a two-game playoff in which the team who scores the most goals wins. Kinda lame.

And of Red Wings-related prospect note in North America on Wednesday:

In the QMJHL, Oscar Plandowski finished at +2 with 2 shots in the Charlottetown Islanders’ 8-2 win over Halifax;

In the WHL, Sebastian Cossa’s Edmonton Oil Kings won 5-2 over Calgary;

And Alex Cotton scored 2 goals, finishing at -2 with 5 shots in the Vancouver Giants’ 7-3 loss to Prince George.

  1. Regarding the Champion’s League game, I believe that Edvinsson and Neiderbach are currently in Edmonton with Sweden’s WJC team.
