The escape from J20 National
It sounds much worse than it really is
As the junior series first paused their activities and then closed down for the rest of the season, the country’s senior series have found several players to loan or sign contracts with for the rest of their seasons.
A perfect solution for everyone involved as the juniors get the necessary ice time and also good opportunity to play at senior level at the same time as new career opportunities can open up.
Every minute of game-time is better than none, for most junior players there is no opportunity for games at all
Most of the juniors who are now either on loan or on contract for the rest of the season in senior teams will probably not get the ice time they are used to from their junior teams, but on the other hand, they will now at least get the chance to play.
It is mainly teams from Sweden’s third league, HockeyEttan, which now offer juniors games. Several of the loans started already at the end of 2020 and continue more or less daily with new ones. Follow all current loans / transfers at EliteProspects.
