IC Summer Series | Chat with Winnipeg Jets prospect Daniel Torgersson

A chat with the Swedish product.

The IC Summer Series continued with Jets 2020 2nd rounder Daniel Torgersson who is back in Winnipeg ahead of his second full season in pro hockey here in North America. He played 69 regular season games plus five playoff games for the Moose in 2022-23 scoring 11 goals and nine assists while also scoring a rather “interesting” playoff goal which we discussed in our conversation. The Swedish product spoke about training, conditioning, Swedish chip dips and much more as he prepares for training camp.
