Stenqvist possesses an excellent mobility with great puck skills, which could develop him into a great fantasy asset down the road. He’s a project.

June 2020 – Stenqvist didn’t get signed by the June first deadline, making him a free agent. Jokke Nevalainen
April 2018 – Jakob Stenqvist, who’s still only 20 years old, played for the 2nd straight year in the Allsvenkan, Sweden’s 2nd-tier pro league. It might seem like a disappointment that he wasn’t able to play for Frolunda in the SHL, but he had a very good campaign in which he more then tripled his production. He ended the season with 22 points in 46 games, which ranks him #2 in the league among all U24 defensemen. His development since the draft has been spectacular for a 6th-round selection. The next step for him will be to graduate in the SHL and that might be by taking Rasmus Dahlin spot next season if he plays in the NHL right away. Jean-Philippe Macoul
July 2016 – Stenqvist played in the Super Elite league in Sweden last year, and will likely be there again this season. His point totals weren’t terrific, but he possesses a big body and is a good skater. Like the other 2016 draft picks of the Stars, Stenqvist is a longer project that will be given plenty of time to develop before getting a look with the Stars. The hope is that he will turn into a younger version of another Swedish defenseman, John Klingberg. Matt Kowalski
