With the regular season set to begin this weekend Las Vegas has acquired another international player with an extensive history of high level competition. Meet Emil Svartbro, a 20-year old who has played the majority of his Junior career in the Swedish system.

"Emil brings another level of skill and speed to our roster," commented head coach Dave Hyrsky. "Emil will be a fan favorite. He is the whole package for this level and I'm sure will find a place to play at the next level if he chooses. We are lucky to Emil on our team."

A product of the elite Djurgårdens IF organization, Svartbro played the past two seasons in the SuperElit league. He also represented his home country of Estonia at the 2019 IIHF World Championship Division II helping the team earn promotion to Division I.
