Isac Lundeström is hot right now. The 20-year-old center is currently riding a four-game point streak in HockeyAllsvenskan (Sweden’s second tier men’s hockey league), snagging an assist in Wednesday night’s match up against Mora IK. Coming into tonight, he’s been on a three-game goal streak.

“It’s always fun to contribute in that way and to hang them there,” he told Swedish news site HockeyNews SE (via Google Translate). “I have received good passes. It’s great fun to play hockey right now.”

“It feels better and better in the legs and body, so it’s just to keep working. I want to be a factor in both parts and take responsibility in the defensive zone and be calm with the puck. I think it feels good.”

Lunström’s nine points (four goals, five assists) in nine games ranks sixth-best on his Timrå IK club.

Here’s a quick glance at how the rest of the Ducks are doing abroad (Note: I broke it down by league, to give an easy comparison of how players in the same league are performing. This means that players might have multiple entries, if they are shifted up and down between leagues):
