Observations

April 2019 – A defender with a high hockey IQ and a good first pass. He has shown flashes at both the SHL level and Allsvenskan over the past two season in his limited playing time. He has performed well in international play including six points in 11 games with Sweden’s U20 team this year. He finds lanes to skate the puck out of his zone and excelled at exiting the defensive zone. His in-zone play in his own end has been inconsistent, and he doesn’t engage physically and shies away from contact at times. His stick work has been solid at times but more work on his in-zone positioning is needed. With the ability to move the puck, he should work well as a two-way defender in the modern pro game.
