• In 2008-09, Paajarvi-Svensson finished with 17 points (7-10-17) in 50 games, competing as a 17-year-old in the Swedish Elite League for Timra. He made his debut in the Swedish Elite League (September 24, 2007) at age sixteen years, five months, and twelve days, becoming the fourth youngest player in Elite League history.

• Won back-to-back silver medals with Team Sweden at the World Junior Championships, finishing tied for second on the team with seven points (2-5-7) in six games in 2009. In 2008, he became the youngest Swede to play in the World Junior Championship and the youngest since Sidney Crosby debuted at the 2004 World Juniors. Other 16-year-olds to play in the tournament include: Jason Spezza, Janne Niinimaa, Eric Lindros, Robert Reichel and Wayne Gretzky.

• He is teammates with older brother, Bjorn, on Timra and his father, Gunnar, also played in the Swedish Elite League and is now a player agent. Magnus credits his dad and brother for having had the most influence on his career and the reason he became a hockey player.

• In 2005, appearing in the Sweden’s national tournament TV-Pucken, for the first time, he scored eight goals (8-3-11) in eight games for his home district of Skåne. He participated in the tournament in each of the next two years recording 11 points (7-4-11) in 2006 and 12 points (5-7-12) in 2007.

• He patterns his game after Maxim Afinogenov, Alex Kovalev and Pavel Bure – “I take small things from a lot of offensive players and trying to use it to my advantage”.

• The most memorable international hockey moment he has watched was when Marian Gaborik scored two goals in Slovakia’s 5-3 win over Russia at the 2006 Olympics.
