Fantasy Summary

Starting goalie upside, but as with most goalies there is a lengthy wait time

Octoboer 2020 – Eriksson-Ek started out his North American career in the ECHL with the Tulsa Oilers. He had an average season with a GAA of 3.01 and a save percentage of .902. Adjusting to the smaller ice surface and living in a new country were two big hurdles for his game. Lukas Dostal has overtaken him as the team’s top goalie prospect, but he is still only 21-years old with plenty of game ahead of him.

April 2018 – Bob Murray has said he wants to start filling up the goalie cupboard again so the Ducks drafted Olle Eriksson-Ek out of Sweden. He has played in Sweden’s Superelit league (Sweden’s top junior league) for the past two seasons on Farjestad BK and had a 2.16 GAA and .924 save percentage last year and an astounding 2.01 GAA and .924 this season. He was loaned out to Karlskoga where he played 11 games and posted a 2.33 GAA and a .907 save percentage. He has good size (6-3) and displayed quick lateral movement during his limited action in the World Juniors this season. Hockey is in his blood as his father won three SHL titles with Farjestad and his brother Joel is a former first rounder and one of Minnesota’s top prospects. We all know how long it takes goalies to make the jump to the show, but Olle is one guy to keep a watch on and . Coming from a hockey family, he has the tools to become an NHL goalie. Will stay in Europe for another year and need some time to adjust to the North American ice in the AHL but if you have a farm spot available, stash him now.stash on your farm teams if you have the space.
