SCOUTING REPORT
"He has a bright future. We want to bring him along properly. The way he has played here (2004 IIHF World Championship) and having had the opportunity to have him (at a Rangers summer prospect camp in 2003) he has given us no reason to think otherwise."

“Henrik wants the shooter. He wants the puck. He is not afraid to come out and take down the angle. He has good reflexes and he is a good athlete and he will have to get adjusted to the narrower rink and a different look at the attack but that is all part of the process.”
- Rangers Head Coach and Vice President of Player Development, Tom Renney

"Henrik has had an outstanding, impressive two seasons with Frolunda of the Swedish Elite League. He has improved a lot over the past few seasons and is considered to be the most talented young goaltender in Sweden. Henrik possesses good, quick reflexes. He really moves well and is rarely caught out of position. He also has a very good understanding of the game and is a solid competitor."
- Rangers European scout, Christer Rockstrom
