September 2020 – The Rangers’ 2019 sixth-round draft-pick has returned to Rogle of the SHL for what will be his second consecutive full season in the top Swedish pro. In his first full campaign with the club, the 6-6 forward grew into a prominent checking role, which is where he picks up upon his return. In his first game back, Edstrom earned a five-game suspension for a direct hit to the head while effectively stopping an opponents zone entry. His unsigned rights will remain with the New York Rangers until the summer of 2023, so the long development track that Edstrom is on seems to be entirely acceptable for the organization. If the finesse aspects of his game grow over the next couple of years, Edstrom could become an effective fourth-line player in the NHL one day.  Brayden Olafson
