The Canucks' 2022 first-round pick has had quite the journey this year. He played in the Hockey Allsvenkan and things didn't come easy for him during the season, it all changed, however, once the playoff started.

He lit it up and now that he's signed his NHL contract, SHL teams are lining up to get him under contract.

It appears that Obrero is very much interested in his services for the 2023-2024 campaign. Obrero also happens to host one of the most anticipated prospect Leo Carlsson.

‘' Looks like Canucks prospect Jonathan Lekkerimaki is going to sign with Orebro in the SHL & become teammates with 2023 top Draft prospect Leo Carlsson.''




Rick Dhaliwal also confirmed the information regarding Lekkerimaki's next destination:


While at first, the winger didn't play anywhere near the expected level, he's stepped it up nicely during the playoffs managing 15 points in 15 games. It surely is good news that multiple teams are trying to get him under contract, the fact that demand is high must mean something regarding his potential.
