Vancouver Canucks prospect Jonathan Dahlen, who was assigned to the AHL’s Utica Comets after being cut in training camp, has signed a new one-year deal with Timra IK of the Swedish Allsvenskan league.
Interestingly, Timra plays in Sweden’s second tier of professional hockey, so Dahlen’s new deal includes an out-clause whereby he can move to the SHL (1st division in Sweden) or North American after January 1st. If he elects to stay in Sweden it’ll be either with Timra or Brynas of the SHL. It’s unclear whether his out clause would allow him to play for the Comets in the AHL or if he’d have to stick with the Canucks in the NHL.
In any case, Canucks fans can rest easy knowing that one of their top prospects finally have a home for the 2017-18 season.
