Reports are coming in from Sweden that with Philip Broberg’s club team Skelleftea now out of the playoffs, Broberg is coming to play in North America.

Rasmus Kågström, an editor at Hockeysverige reports (with Google acting as translator): “A number of players are now leaving Skellefteå AIK – including Philip Broberg. What I hear is that Oilers wants him over as soon as possible to North America – and it’s not to play AHL hockey.”

Uffe Bodin, editor in chief at Hockeysverige added: “Considering how difficult it has been for Filip Berglund to get over to North America, I guess it can be problematic for Broberg as well. Tricky when Canadian teams have their AHL teams in the US, apparently.”
