Observations

January 2020 – Haman-Aktell is enjoying his best professional season to date.  With 10 points in 36 games and a plus 17, the defensive defender is showing a more confident and capable offensive side to his game.  In the past, Haman-Aktell has been prone to injury but has shown to be durable thus far. In his second season in IF Bjorkloven of the Allsvenskan, Haman-Aktell is steadily improving.  Should he sign his ELC and begin his development in a Nashville system known for raising defensive talent, the 6 foot 4, 200-pound rearguard could prove to be a great value pick. – Nicholas Kawka

 

July 2019 – Haman-Aktell rounded out his season with IF Bjorkloven with 1-5-6 over 34GP and registered 28 PIM, showcasing his true calling as a two-way defender with strong defensive play.  Injuries were not an issue for him this past season and he will look to build on similar consistency next season. It will be a significant year in his long-term future with the Predators with ELC potential in sight. – Nicholas Kawka

 

November 2018 – Häman-Aktell has spent the majority of the 2018-2019 campaign playing for IF Björklöven in Allsvenskan, the Swedish second league. The fourth-round pick of the Nashville Predators in 2016 has played in seven Allsvenskan games, registering one assist in the process. Matt Somma

January 2018 – Aktell is a bit of a mystery prospect. Since being drafted by the Predators in 2016, Aktell has played a total of eight games for Skellefteå of the SuperElit. He had three points in as many games in 2016-2017, and currently has one assist in five games this season along with 27 penalty minutes. Aktell missed a significant amount of time due to a hip injury. He produced at a tremendous rate before the injury and looked to be a hidden gem for the Predators. Skellefteå’s season just entered the second half, and Aktell has reclaimed his spot on the first defense pair. As he readjusts post-injury, the production will hopefully follow suit. If Aktell can stay healthy, he has the potential to be a top-six NHL defenseman. He has excellent size, skates well, and has shown he can put up points. Tyler Halsey
