Magnus Pääjärvi-Svensson was chosen 10th overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He is currently playing for Timrå IK in the Swedish Elite League. Pääjärvi-Svensson is the son of retired ice hockey player and coach Gunnar Svensson, who currently is the agent for Henrik Zetterberg among others.
He made his Swedish Elite League (Elitserien) debut in September 2007 at the age of sixteen, becoming the fourth youngest player in SEL's history. He has become a very fast and skilled winger and he drives to the net like a demon. He can get around opposing defenseman with ease and has a quick wrist-shot. He has good hockey sense and often scores spectacular goals and does things that are hard to define.
During the 2008 World Junior Hockey Championships in the Czech Republic, he became the youngest Swedish player ever to play during a World Junior Hockey Championship. Pääjärvi-Svensson has won silver medals in 2008 and 2009 at previous World Junior Championships and will be looking towards gold this winter.
