Sweden was producing some fine young hockey players, with back-to-back CALDER TROPHY recipients coming from the Scandinavian hockey hotbed. DANIEL ALFREDSSON was a late draft pick of the Ottawa Senators in 1994, having been chosen 133rd overall. ALFREDSSON joined the Senators in 1995-96, and promptly exhibited his leadership qualities, scoring 26 goals and 35 assists for 61 points. The right winger suffered with his team though, as the Senators finished last overall. The bright light in Ottawa's otherwise dark season was the discovery of ALFREDSSON, who was selected as the NHL's CALDER TROPHY winner for 1995-96. Eric Daze of the Chicago Black Hawks came in second in the rookie voting.
