Kristian Huselius - "Juice"

Kent Nilsson’s true son. The slick Swede may just be the best stickhandler in the league, owns quite the wrist shot as well. Most talented Flame. Agile and calculating, reads offensive plays tremendously well. Was on for an important goal against in the playoffs, but I feel he wasn’t responsible. Potentially in the Keenan doghouse. Should receive more ice time. Not physical at all. Has a very high chance of at least starting the season on a line with Owen Nolan.

i really think juice stepped up his game towards the end of the season, especially defensively. i'm not suggesting he was awesome in his own end, but he was definitely an improved player.

i still can't believe that they call him juice cause his head is small like the shrunken-head guy in beetlejuice. that's toooo funny....

Oh geez, I never knew the story. I thought it was because the way he weaves through people it's like he's liquid.

K: negative. i saw an interview (which i can no longer find on youtube) on flames tv whereby mccarty explains it. then my brother and i took to calling out "BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE" at games when huselius gets the puck.

no point.
