Axel Jonsson-Fjällby scored only one goal in the regular season. In the playoffs, however, he is continuing to be a game breaker, just like last year.
With a 4-1-victory at Skellefteå, Jonsson-Fjällby’s Djurgården are moving on to the semifinal of the SHL playoffs after winning the series four games to two. With an assist in Game Six, Axel is now tied for the scoring lead on the team with 4 points (2+2).

The tally itself was a thing of beauty. Ahead 2-1 after 40 minutes, AJF got the puck to the left on a rush attack He fired the puck towards the net, where Marcus Davidsson tipped the biscuit in.
The goal was the back-breaker for Skellefteå, who never had a chance to get back into the game.
