Senators’ Silfverberg makes his NHL debut in Game 6

Apr 23, 2012, 7:12 PM EDT


We mentioned earlier that Jakob Silfverberg might make his NHL debut tonight. Well now we know for sure: he’s in.

Silfverberg is one of the Senators’ top prospects and the winner of the Swedish Elite League’s most valuable player award. He also led the Swedish Elite League in playoff scoring before joining Ottawa.

He practiced on a line with Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza, so Silfverberg might get some important minutes Monday night.

Sportsnet’s Ian Mendes also pointed out that Silfverberg is the third player to make his NHL debut in this series. The other two are Chris Kreider and Mark Stone.

In a game that was already critical for both Ottawa and the New York Rangers, Silfverberg’s debut will add yet another layer of intrigue.

    Sens already up 1-0. Crazy stuff. Canucks fall last night, Rangers on the ropes and game 7 looming for the Bs. Can any of the heavyweights survive?

    It’s the Cup. Show up, skate, check, score or go home!

    Someone forgot to tell Silfverberg you can crush the D-man on icing anymore. Otherwise, he looked pretty threatening. I just hope he only has one more game this year before heading back home to get ready for next year! LET’S GO RANGERS!

    Good to see Draco Malfoy gave up Quidditch to play Hockey.
