Calle Järnkrok (born 25 September 1991), nicknamed Ironhook,[1][2] is a Swedish professional ice hockey player, currently playing for the Milwaukee Admirals in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect for the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL). Järnkrok was drafted 51st overall by the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League (NHL) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

After a strong second half to the 2009–10 season where Järnkrok got a regular roster spot on Brynäs, Järnkrok went from 21st among European Skaters in the midterm rankings to fourth among European Skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings for the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He was drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft by the Detroit Red Wings.

28 games into the 2010–11 season, Järnkrok led all junior players in points with eight goals and nine assists and was selected to be the second of four Elitserien Rookie of the Year candidates of the season.[3]

On March 5, 2014, Järnkrok was traded to the Nashville Predators, along with Patrick Eaves, as part of a deal that brought David Legwand to Detroit. He was assigned to the Predators AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals.[4] Järnkrok recorded an assist in his NHL debut on March 21, 2014.[5] Järnkrok scored his first NHL goal on March 27, 2014, against Matt Hackett of the Buffalo Sabres.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Järnkrok's cousin, Elias Lindholm, was drafted 5th overall by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
