Flyers prospect Robert Hagg enjoys the smaller ice surfaces in North America more than the larger surfaces he played in in his native Sweden.

"It is more fun to play here than in Sweden," Hagg said. "You can grab the forwards much easier in the corner. It’s much more physical. Plus, you can make one good pass and have a good scoring chance. In Sweden, it takes four or five passes. The smaller ice makes the game a little bit faster. You have to more fully concentrate on every shift. There is going to be a goal (against) if you are going to just skate around out there." Hagg made a good impression on the Flyers' braintrust when he played for the team's AHL affiliate in Adirondack last season for 10 games. "He played like a really well-rounded defenseman," said Terry Murray, who coached Hagg at Adirondack and will again this season as the Flyers move the team to Lehigh Valley. "He showed a good defensive stick and reads the play well while showing good strength. He made a lot of good plays, not flashy, just efficient."

The Philadelphia Flyers are attempting to fortify their defense corps as they also selected a blueliner (Robert Hagg) with the 41st pick.

Hagg boasts the instincts of a possible power-play quarterback, with smooth skating and great playmaking skills. He's solid defensively to boot. The question is if he can consistently perform on a high level. It's expected he'll need some time to develop, so Philly must be patient with the intriguing Swede.
