Sheng’s Daily: Why Didn’t Kellman Choose to Play in SHL?

Published

Yesterday at San Jose Hockey Now, a third scout jumped in on an old, but still very relevant story: Who’s more tradeable, Brent Burns, Marc-Eduard Vlasic, or Erik Karlsson?

UPDATED: Who’s More Tradeable? Scouts Decide Between Burns, Karlsson & Vlasic

In other San Jose Sharks news…

It’s official: The San Jose Sharks have loaned Joel Kellman to Allsvenskan’s Kristianstads IK. (Kristianstads IK)

We spoke with Joel two days ago in advance of this move and he talked about the rumors connecting him and the Allsvenskan side:

Kellman Hopes to Play in Sweden This Year

After Kellman’s loan was announced, many questioned why he didn’t join the SHL, Sweden’s top hockey league.

From what I’ve understood, the SHL isn’t accepting any short-term rentals, which Kellman would’ve been.

But to get further clarity on the topic, I spoke with Swedish hockey insiders Per Bjurman and Uffe Bodin.

Simply: The SHL is not allowing short-term NHL loans, while Allsvenskan is.

There are exceptions, such as newly-signed Shark Fredrik Handemark, who was loaned back to the Malmo Redhawks.

The difference with Handemark and other NHL players who have returned to the SHL like Tobias Bjornfot (Djurgårdens IF) and Joakim Nygard (Färjestad BK)?

They had pre-existing SHL contracts that they were previously allowed to opt out of to play in the North America. Once the NHL starts again, they’ll be allowed to opt out of their SHL contracts again.

So Handemark is still on track to join the San Jose Sharks whenever the 2020-21 season starts.
