GbrynasThe Strugglers (36-40 pts)
Both Brynäs IF and AIK are not bad teams, but just have not been able to keep it together often enough over a full 60 minutes. They have both lost 21 regulation matches over the season whilst Brynäs IF have just 12 wins and AIK only 9.
Brynäs finishing a disappointing seventh place overall. Their season was undoubtedly hampered by injury to Canadian superstar, Jennifer Wakefield. She only played nine matches for the club this season but scored 18 points, including 13 goals. Veteran, Erika Grahm took up the points scoring duties at the Gävle club, earning the 28 year old Swede further international caps.
For AIK it was eighth place, with 26 year old Lisa Johansson their top scorer whom alongside 24 year old, forward and Olympian Sabina Küller has also been selected for international duty for Sweden for the club that has fewest import players of all the teams in the SDHL.
