Fantasy Summary

The 19 year old Larsson, listed at six foot three and 203 pounds, is a sturdy, puck-moving defenseman with an accurate shot. Larsson will spend the 2023-24 campaign with the Green Bay Gamblers of the USHL, and then will be on to the NCAA for the 2024-25 season. Drafted as an overager, Larsson will need plenty of development time over the course of the next few seasons, as he attempts to earn himself an NHL contract. Luckily for Larsson and the Rangers organization, the club holds his signing rights until August 15, 2028. If it all comes together for Larsson, he can become a big, bruising bottom-four NHL defenseman.
