Marcus Sorensen isn’t the biggest player in the SHL – he’s stands 5-foot-11, 161 pounds – and according to Elite Prospects his game would be improved if he got stronger. The 22-year-old Swede better not ever have his strength questioned again.

Friday night Sorensen, a fourth-round, 106th overall selection of the Ottawa Senators in 2010, scored the kind of goal you would expect out of a Rick Nash or Peter Forsberg type power forward. In overtime between Djurgarden, Sorensen’s club, and Leksand, he grabbed the puck at the blueline, fought through two checks and buried an incredible individual effort tally.

The marker was Sorensen’s 17th and 32nd point in 48 games with Djurgarden this season. In 55 career SHL games, Sorensen has scored 17 goals and 33 points. It’s his first season in Sweden’s top league after spending two seasons in the Swedish second league, Allsvenskan.

In September 2014, Sorensen signed a three-year extension with Djurgarden that will keep him with the club until 2017-18.
