A big, intelligent, strong winger with a scoring touch but lacks offensive creativity—projects as a bottom-six net-front presence that’s hard to knock off the puck. Skates well for his size and has a good shot, but he needs time to develop his all-around game—limited fantasy upside.

October 2023 – Torgersson participated in the 2023 Young Stars Classic in Penticton, B.C., from September 15-18, 2023. He also attended the Jets’ training camp before being reassigned to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League to start the 2023-24 season. In four games with the Moose, the Winnipeg Jets second-round pick (40th overall) in 2020 has two assists. Mark Henry
June 2023 – After a short, relatively successful, 4-game stint with the Moose at the end of the 2021/22 season, Torgersson spent the full season with the Moose this year, and it may not have gone as well as he hoped. Torgersson kept his do-it-all style, as he could be slotted in many different scenarios and succeed. He specialized as a forechecking energy bottom six players with the moose and was successful as a defensive winger for most points of the season. The offense has a way to go, but he shows potential there. He has a good, quick shot, and he has a good skating technique, but he should be urged to work on the explosiveness of his stride. If he can get his hands to work as fast as his brain, he could hit his fantasy upside at an NHL level. Seth Ditchfield
May 2022 – Torgersson saw plenty of action across five different levels of competition this season including Sweden’s top three leagues, World Junior Championships, and the AHL to cap his season. He came as advertised at the AHL level, showing his strength and drive while recording three points in four appearances (2G, 1A). He spent the majority of the 2021-22 season on loan from Frolunda in the SHL to AIK in HockeyAllsvenskan. The move was an attempt to get the young winger some valuable minutes while he rehabbed from knee surgery to repair a torn ligament that cost him most of the previous season. Torgersson was limited to 13:03 per night with minimal powerplay opportunities with AIK. He did however make the most of his minutes, ranking second among forwards under 21 years old in points-per-game league-wide. While Torgersson is by no means a volume shooter at this point, he is quite efficient in strategically getting pucks to the net to the tune of a 13.73% shooting percentage. Torgersson uses his pro-sized frame and strength to drive the net, and power his way to greasy areas to make plays. He utilizes his body effectively to be a serviceable board player, which will carry over at the pro level in North America. While his skating is average and could become more explosive, his ability to read/react, shoot, and his conscious three-zone-awareness are what will draw success for the young winger. Torgersson will pursue his middle-six upside next season, likely beginning with the Manitoba Moose after signing an Entry-Level Contract on April 9th. Justin Kaye
October 2020 – Torgersson was drafted 40th overall by the Jets. Torgersson is expected to spend two or three more years in Sweden before crossing the pond. Jokke Nevalainen
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
