Homage to Per

No one has picked up on the connection, but Tobias
Enstrom wearing #39 will be an homage to fellow Swede
Per Svartvadet, an original Thrasher who played with
Enstrom at MoDo and was instrumental in preparing him
to come over.

Svartvadet played for the Thrashers from 1999 to 2003,
wearing #39. He was a checking liner, a player in the
same vein as Colin Stuart. A very good guy.
Svartvadet might not have ever gotten much of the
spotlight, but he'll be remembered through Enstrom for
years to come.

I loved Per Svartvadet...solid, quiet leader-type...scored 10 goals (21 points I think) in one year with Atlanta.
