Fantasy Summary

Long and rangy winger possessing strong puck skills and Middle 6 potential


Click to Expand

June 2022 – Coming over from Sweden, Walther was hoping to have a strong freshman season with the University of Vermont. However, his production left a lot to be desired. He scored three goals and eight points throughout 35 games. On the other hand, Vermont was not a very good college team. They finished with a record of 8-2-25 and finished second last in Hockey East. Their top point producer only finished with 16 points on the season, and he is over three years older than Walther. If he can take a step forward on a hopefully improved Vermont team next year, it would go a long way in reinforcing his middle six potential. He has the length and puck skills to be a contributor at the NHL level. Curtis Rines


November 2020 – Walther continues to excel offensively and is clipping along at a point a game pace. He is maintaining his scoring touch while still playing with an edge. What is most encouraging is that Walther is serving as an assistant captain this season and showing signs of maturity and leadership. With the added feather in his cap, Walther is a must-watch in deeper fantasy formats. Nicholas Kawka


July 2020 – Walther was strong in his first full season playing in the SuperElit league.  He finished tied for second on the Sodertalje J20 team with 10 goals and showed off his puck skills and quick release.  As Walther fills out his frame, he will only add to his puck possession metrics and become an even more focal player on the offense. Walther should be on the sleeper to watch in the Nashville depth charts. Nicholas Kawka


October 2019 – Early this season with the Sodertalje SK J20 squad, Walther looks to already be adding another element to his overall game.  In just 14 games, Walther is up to 36 penalty minutes and showing signs of engaging more physically. The skilled winger is still contributing offensively at a modest rate of three goals and five points on the season, but it is encouraging to see Walther trying to take his game to another level. – Nicholas Kawka


July 2019 – Nashville continued a similar trend in their 2019 draft selections taking offensively minded Walther at #179.  Walther is a tall average skating winger who demonstrates creative passing and excellent one on one stickhandling in tight.  He toyed with the competition in the J18 Elit league scoring 34 points in 21 games and continued a noticeable scoring pace in the J20 SuperElit.  There is no doubt that Walther can score and moving forward, he will need to refine his complete game focusing on his defensive awareness and consistency in his compete level.  Should Walther round out his game and grow into his frame, the Predators could have themselves a an excellent pick late in the draft.
