Observations

May 2020 – Torgersson had a great season in the SuperElit, scoring 26 goals and 44 points in 39 games. Those numbers are excellent but they might be a bit misleading considering his skill-set. Torgersson is big (6-3, 205) and physically mature which helped him tremendously against other junior players. He also benefitted from playing a complementary role on a great Frölunda J20 team, playing alongside some greatly talented offensive creators.

Torgersson is a very good skater but his skill-set isn’t high-end by any means. He has a good shot and decent puck skills but he’s more of a finisher than a creator. Eventually, he could play a complementary offensive role somewhere in the top nine while possibly being the net-front guy on the power play and getting some time on the penalty kill. His two-way game is solid and his on-ice effort level is good as well, so he can be used in all situations.

Torgersson should graduate to the men’s level in 2020-2021, hopefully playing a regular role on Frölunda’s SHL team. He might start with a very small role, possibly on the fourth line, because Frölunda is always one of the top teams in Europe year after year, so young players have a tough time earning a big role on that team. Torgersson is projected to be drafted late in the second round or somewhere in the third round.  Jokke Nevalainen
