June 2023 – Fisker-Mølgaard has been selected 52nd overall by the Seattle Kraken in the 2023 NHL Draft. Curtis Rines

April 2023 – Mølgaard’s rapid learning and adaptation to SHL hockey has quickly moved him toward the top of many lists, including ours. What stands out most about Mølgaard was his ability to match intensity and physicality, despite often being smaller than his opponents. He is intelligent on and off the puck, knowing when to engage, where to be, and how to attack. He wins a significant number of battles along the boards, mostly by utilizing his quick maneuvers to the inside. Mølgaard’s 7 SHL points this season are respectable, but his professional-level scoring ability once again comes down to his desire to get involved in high-intensity plays. Most of his goals scored in any league this season were accomplished by battling net-front for loose pucks or deflections. He served this role well on his teams, though he only recorded 17 shots on goal the entire season, the lowest of any forward that played more than 25 games with the club in 2022-23. Alexa Potack

March 2023 – Oscar Fisker Mølgaard is a forward who has carved out a third-line SHL role as a first-time draft eligible by playing a remarkably refined professional game. Fisker Mølgaard plays with tremendous intensity and purpose, he reads the ice better than most U21 SHLers, let alone U18s. Defensively, he plays very well in a compact system and applies great pressure on the right man at the right time. A future role as a key defensive forward in an NHL bottom-six is easy to envisage. Offensively, he flashes his intelligence and timing by consistently finding and exploiting soft ice, which is facilitated by his constant unpredictable off-puck movement and his willingness to attack the slot. He is significantly stronger off-puck offensively than he is with the puck on his stick. His passing and playmaking skills project around league average, his handling and shooting project as fourth-line calibre tools.

In order to unlock 2nd line upside – which his intelligence, intensity, and defensive skill would support – Fisker Mølgaard will need to really work on his offensive tools, which an organization with a strong development team could help make a reality. He may not be the biggest bet on upside available in the 2023 class, but Oscar Fisker Mølgaard is a high-likelihood NHLer with potential to unlock a highly-impactful upside. Sebastian High
