Observations

July 2020 – After an impressive start to the 2019-20 season, Haman-Aktell continued his strong performance to close out the shortened year and finished with 16 points in 45 games. He improved in every statistical category and was among the Bjorkloven team leaders in plus/minus. The development of his two-way game is building and will be his bread and butter moving forward. Within the last few seasons, Haman-Aktell has remedied his injury woes and looks to be rounding into fine form. Nicholas Kawka

 

June 2020 – Häman-Aktell did not get signed by the June first deadline, making him a free agent.  Jokke Nevalainen

 

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
