Observations

March 2019 — This was supposed to be a better season for Zetterlund but the 19-year-old suffered a knee injury that limited him to 16 games. He had four points in the SHL for Farjestad BK. The concern is that Zetterlund was just starting to round into form and then re-injury to the same knee that impacted his 2018 season. Does New Jersey sign him to a contract or do they pass? Chris Wassel 

June 2017 – Zetterlund has a lethal shot and uses it, firing 143 SOG in 40 games this past campaign in Sweden’s SuperElit league. Add to that an almost point-per-game regular schedule rate, and three goals and two assists in seven U-18 World tourney contests with 28 shots and you have one of the most skilled 2017 draft-eligible point-producing forwards. The Devils may have stolen one here, as the 17-year-old has plenty of time to perfect his extra-heavy shot and quick release while traveling the NHL path. Protects the puck well and has impressive lower-body strength for his age and developing build. Will look to increase speed and boost defensive prowess. Kevin Wickersham
