Observations

May 2018 – At present Setkov continues to be a long-term project that has yet to show any offensive potential. He skates well for a very tall player and has plenty of time to develop, but if he does eventually make it to the NHL it is likely as a shutdown defender. Mark Hillier

September 2017 – The huge defensive defenseman compiled two goals, 12 points, 18 PIMs and was plus-7 in 38 regular season games with the Malmö RedHawks J20 of the SuperElit. He has solid mobility for his size and remains poised when pressured by forecheckers. His size allows him to effectively eliminate opponents along the boards and he uses his long reach well to block passing lanes. He makes an accurate breakout pass and was utilized more so on the PK than the PP. His junior coach in Sweden has praised Setkov for his willingness to learn, for his commitment to travel from Denmark to Sweden each day and for how quickly he has improved.

Setkov was not ranked by most, if not all, of the main scouting services and can be considered an off-the-board project at this point whose upside is relatively unknown. Jameson Ewasiuk
