Thelander is seeking a junior position in the United States, this Fall.

Thelander was the top scoring defenseman for Tidaholms HF, with a stat line of 29GP-7G-10A-17PTS-39PIMS. He also led the team in playoff scoring, with 3 Goals in 3 Games Played. Thelander was 6th in scoring among U20 defensemen in Division 3. He also led the Borås J20 team in Points-Per-Game for a defenseman, recording a stat line of 7GP-3G-3A-6PTS. The last two seasons, Thelander played for Skövde IK in J20 Elit. He also played one game for the A-Lag senior team in Division 1.

International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented, 

“Anton is a big, strong defenseman that is not afraid to play the body. He can be a dangerous player when he gets the puck and changes from defense to offense. He put up double-digit goals, this year, and then added to that in the playoffs. So, we are expecting a big developmental year for him, and I’m excited to see him realize even more of his potential."
