Observations

June 2018 – Eriksson was drafted 44th overall by the Dallas Stars. Eriksson is a modern power forward who uses his size (6-4, 207) to protect the puck instead of punishing opposing players with physical play. He’s a very good skater for someone his size and he has a very good shot. He’s more of a goal-scorer but can also make plays. Discipline has been a bit of an issue, so that’s one area he needs to focus on – it was probably the reason he wasn’t selected to play at the U18 World Championship tournament. There’s a lot of upside but if his development is handled properly, he could become a really good top-six forward who also plays on the power play.  Jokke Nevalainen
