Get to know jesper
Jesper was born November 14th 2002 in Västerås, a small town just outside of Stockholm. He was introduced to skating very early in his life as he started skating with the local bandy team in Västerås. However, he started to play hockey instead due to the lack of competition in bandy. The decision to become a goalie was an easy one as Jesper's father was a hockey goalie as well and his eight year older brother is currently a goalie in NCAA college league in the United States of America.
The 17/18 season was Jespers breakthrough year. For instance, he succeeded several records in the Swedish U20 league and surpassed Victor Hedman by being the youngest player ever to play in the league. Jesper also became the youngest player to ever score a goal, which is truly remarkable considering he is a goalie. Jesper represented the Swedish national team for U16, U17 and U18. Jesper recently moved from his hometown Västerås to Luleå where he will continue his junior career.
