The question now is where exactly he will play? Swedish source Kvalls Posten seems confident the answer is the NHL, as they report that Lennstrom is choosing between a number of offers, but seems most likely to land with the Edmonton Oilers.

Lennstrom, 25, was undrafted out of Sweden and has never played anywhere but his native country, but finally seems ready to take the next step in his career and sign an NHL entry-level contract. Lennstrom is an offensive defenseman, excelling in the skating and possession aspects of the game. His defensive game is likely not quite ready for the NHL and he may need to start in the AHL upon arriving to North America.

If he is to succeed at the top level, Edmonton seems like a strong choice. Posten notes the Oilers have two fellow Swedish defensemen in Oscar Klefbom and Adam Larsson, as well as a former teammate of Lennstrom’s in Joakim Nygard.

On the other hand, the Oilers have a decent amount of depth on the blue line and that position battle would become even more crowded if another Swede defender, top prospect Philip Broberg, also decided to jump to North America this offseason. There remain a number of other teams interested in Lennstrom as well, specifically the New Jersey Devils, so his decision is far from made.
