June 2023 – Edstrom had a few flashes of an impressive power game at the U18 Men’s World Championship, and his stock rose as a result, but his NHL projection remains limited in upside. He is not overly dynamic, creative, or aware. His scanning habits are a significant limiting factor at this point in time, but if this can be rectified, a third-line ceiling could be unlocked. He’s not a poor skater and he processes passing options quickly when pressured, which plays a vital role in his NHL projectability. Doubling down on his physical and playmaking games in his development would make him a more cohesive player with an identifiable NHL role. Sebastian High
