Fantasy Summary

A big forward who puts a priority on physical play, but also has the ability to make some offensive contributions.

January 2024 – Edstrom, who went back and forth a few times between the Rangers and the Hartford Wolf Pack this season, made his NHL debut last month, scoring his first NHL goal. After appearing in three games with Hartford at the end of the 2022-2023 season, the massive forward has appeared in 24 games with the Pack this year, totalling ten points, in addition to his aforementioned brief NHL cameo. The powerhouse Swede, listed at six foot six and 210 pounds, is a good skater for his size and looks like a decent bet to crack the Rangers’ bottom six as early as next season. He is also likely to be one of the first call-up options for the remainder of this season in case of an injury to one of New York’s forwards. Brendan Ferry

March 2023 – Edstrom, the towering Center, who is 6-7 and 220 pounds, is on his way to North America, after having signed his ELC with the Rangers last May. After being loaned to the SHL this season with Rogle BK, Edstrom posted nine goals and 10 assists in 42 games played, and also tallied three points in nine playoff games. He was recently assigned to the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, where he has yet to appear in game action. Brendan Ferry


July 2022 – Edstrom suited up for his third season with Rogle BK of the Swedish Hockey League in 2021-2022. The big left-shot forward appeared in 43 games during this past season, scoring seven goals and adding only two assists, followed by four points in 13 playoff games.  Edstrom, if able to carve a path to the NHL, will project as a fourth line player, as he plays a heavy game as a defensive-minded forward. Still, one would expect better production going forward, as he approaches his 22nd birthday this coming October. It will be Edstrom’s fourth full SHL season, and fifth year of SHL play, assuming he stays in his native Sweden. Brendan Ferry


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
