July 2021 – After a solid performance at the World Junior Championship, Sundsvik went back to Sweden and put respectable numbers playing against men in Swedish Hockey League. He has a strong work ethic and can be effective at both ends of the ice. With the Ducks history of Swedish players, he could be skating on North American ice in 2022. Lucas Main

December 2020 – Sundsvik has made Team Sweden’s final roster for the 2021 World Junior Championship. The sixth round pick is already showing dividends as he was named an alternate captain for the Swedes. Lucas Main

October 2020 – The Ducks have a good history of developing Swedish players, so taking a flyer on Sundsvik in the sixth round is a great pick. He has played at over a point-per-game pace the past two seasons in Sweden’s top junior league and suited up for 38 games in the SHL in 2019-20 as an 18-year-old. He is full time with the top Skelleftea team now because of his IQ, size, and strength. He is great on the penalty kill because of his face-off ability and he uses his body to protect the puck and strip his opponents of it.

Even though he gets recognized for his checking abilities, he does shoot the puck very well and when playing with his peers he has the ability to show that off. Once he becomes more established in the SHL, he could break out offensively and turn into a reliable third-line NHL center. Lucas Main
