Fantasy Summary

Play-driving winger with a nose for scoring areas and refined off-puck habits. A safe bet as a top-nine winger in the NHL with the potential for more.

July 2022 – Öhgren has been selected by the Minnesota Wild with the 19th overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft. Nick Richard

December 2021 – There seems to be a common thought that out of the three highly rated prospects from the Djurgårdens system, Öhgren is the one with the safest floor, but also perhaps has the lowest ceiling. While I agree that Öhgren is the most pro-ready of the trio, I’m not convinced his ceiling is drastically lower than the other two. He has scored at a higher rate than both Östlund and Lekkerimäki at the J20 level and has been trusted to play more games in the SHL than Östlund and Lekkerimäki combined so far this season.

Öhgren is a dual-threat offensive player who can generate offense off the rush with a refined give-and-go game, or work into open space to make himself available for dangerous opportunities in the offensive zone. I think he is a stronger skater than some other scouts I’ve spoken with and believe he has the ability to impact the game in transition, carrying the puck through neutral ice and pushing the defenders back to create space. Without the puck, he drives the middle and has a nose for scoring areas where he is able to utilize his quick release to beat goaltenders with well-placed shots. Öhgren also displays responsible, pro-level habits away from the puck in the way that he applies pressure or stays above the puck as the F3 when he isn’t leading the forecheck. He isn’t going to be a star in the NHL but I think Öhgren has a bright future as a two-way, play-driving winger with a bit of a scoring touch. Nick Richard
