June 2023 – Wikman is a mobile defenseman with significant upside in transition, equally as a passer and carrier, who has flashed impressive offensive deception and playmaking. His defensive game is predicated on strong scanning habits and his plus-level mobility, he commands his teammates to cover the biggest threats and is an effective defender, but he will need to add lower body strength and be more aggressive in closing his gaps, both on the cycle and against the rush. If he can address these areas and find more offensive consistency, he could project as a transition-heavy #4 defender, though a third-pairing role in a modern and fluid system is a more comfortable bet. Sebastian High
