Swedish Elite League Playoffs begin tomorrow

David Rundblad finished with 50 points in 55 games, third in the league in points and first among defencemen. His 50 point season also ranks as the second highest point total by a defenseman in SEL history, which is an incredible accomplishment at age 20 (H/T to the users on HFBoards for discovering this)

His Skellefteå AIK team finished 3rd in the regular season and will play the 5th seeded Linköpings HC. (Note in Sweden, the 1st seed gets to pick whether it wants to play 7th or 8th seed, the 2nd seed then choose from the two remaining lowest seeded teams and so on). Game 1 is Tuesday night in Skellefteå.

Jakob Silfverberg finished with 34 points including 18 goals. His 7th seeded Brynäs IF will play 2nd seeded Färjestad BK. Game 1 is also Tuesday night.

André Petersson's HV71 finished in 1st place, but I am not sure if he is playing.

Here is the Elitserien Playoff Schedule.
