There is an entire article about this you can read here: https://torontosun.com/sports/hockey/nh ... fs-defence“I’ve got to be stronger to play in the NHL,” Liljegren said Sunday at the NHLPA Rookie Showcase where 2018-19 hockey card pictures were taken for Upper Deck. “I’ve focused on conditioning, being faster and gaining some muscle. You have to be able to push guys up the boards and stop the play. That’s something I have to show at training camp. I watched all the defencemen on the Marlies and we had some veterans (Justin Holl, Vincent LoVerde, Martin Marincin) and then Travis Dermott went up (spending the second half with the Leafs). It was fun to see and learn what he brought back.”
I mean to me, he sounds like a promising rookie who could actually fit the lineup for the Leafs. He has to adjust and has done so which shows he is able to mold himself into different situations on the ice.
