Just when you thought Pastrmania was dying down...

There isn't much going on in the hockey world right now, but David Pastrnak continues to get accolades. This time, Pastrnak was named the winner of an award in Sweden's Hockey Allsvenskan, the second-tier league in which Pastrnak's Södertälje SK club plays.

The news comes from Andreas Häggström of Uppdrag Sport, a Swedish hockey website that covers Södertälje.

Don't speak Swedish?

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/bruinshockeynow">@bruinshockeynow</a> Nah. Best national team player of the year. Out of anyone representing their country and national last season.</p>&mdash; Andreas (@Materialspelare) <a href="https://twitter.com/Materialspelare/statuses/496326178803040257">August 4, 2014</a></blockquote>

Basically, of all of the Hockey Allsvenskan players who represented their countries last year, Pastrnak was named the best. Pastrnak wasn't present to receive the award, as he's currently in Canada with the Czech U-20 team as part of the World Junior Championships Development Camp.

While it's not exactly a major award, it's another feather in the cap of Pastrnak, who has had himself a whirlwind few weeks.

As per Elite Prospects, Pastrnak appeared in 23 games for the Czech national team in 2013-2014, including stints with the U-18 and U-20 squads. In those games, Pastrnak recorded six goals and nine assists for a total of 15 points.

Do yourself a favor and follow Andreas on Twitter for all things Pastrnak. Assuming the Czech ends up back in Sweden this season, Andreas will be a primary source for updates on Pastrnak's progress.
