Observations

December 2018- Englund has continued his steady defensive play in Belleville this year. While he will never put up major offensive numbers, his solid play overall will help to keep him in the conversation for NHL call-ups due to injury. He just became the first player to play 100 games for the Belleville Senators organization. In all likelihood, he will continue to play many games for the organization at the AHL level. Jordan Deshane

June 2017 – Englund performed exactly as advertised in his first professional season in North America playing a strong, defensively-sound game on a weak Binghamton squad. In 69 games he scored just three times and also had seven assists with an ugly minus-18 (however that was actually one of the better marks among d-men for what it’s worth). He even managed to get into five games with the big club but was held off the scoresheet. Englund will never be confused for Erik Karlsson having never scored more than ten points at any level and don’t look for that to change. What he is though is a tough customer who plays a physical game and willing to throw down when needed. Brad Phillips

 

April 2016 – The Sens have signed their top pick from the 2014 Draft to a three-year, entry-level deal. In 95 career SHL games he has amassed only 11 points. A defensive specialist known for his shutdown ability, Englund doesn’t figure to be much of a fantasy asset. Brad Phillips

 
 

January 2016 – Englund served as captain for fourth-place Sweden and was named one of the top three players on the team. Not known for his offense, Englund dished out two helpers in seven games while seeing top D pairing duty. Brad Phillips

 

December 2015 – For the second consecutive year, Englund will be part of the Swedish contingent at the 2016 World Junior tournament in Finland. Englund should have a much bigger role this time around, having served mainly as the seventh defenseman at last year’s tourney. Brad Phillips

 

April 2015 – The 2014-15 season was Englund’s first in the top level of Swedish hockey for club Djurgarden. He also was a member of Sweden’s World Junior team this season that finished in a disappointing 4th place. As a sturdy, stay at home defenseman, you will not see a lot of flair in the offensive zone from Englund. His physical, steady play in the defensive zone is what will propel him towards a potential NHL career. As a defensive player, Ottawa would like to see an improvement in his plus-minus rating in his second season in the SHL. Englund has a game that may be better suited for the North American ice surface as he relies on a close checking style of play. The young Swedish defenseman has an active stick, battles in the corner and in front of the net and is a willing shot blocker. His fantasy impact comes in multi category leagues where shot blocking and hits are at premium. He is under contract with Djurgarden for next season and will likely make the jump to Binghamton for the 2016-17 season. Kevin LeBlanc

 

July 2014 – Englund was drafted 40th overall out of the Djurgarden program in Sweden, the same program that iced former Sens 1st rounder Mika Zibanejad.  The Stockholm native is a big, strong kid with good defensive fundamentals; uses the body well, makes a great first pass and maintains his gap properly with use of his long reach.  Moving forward Englund is exactly the consistent defensive presence the Sens blueline is looking for.   Nathan Martin
