Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Talented goalie fights for pucks, but has had some terrible games." (Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Still raw, but shows promise in his athleticism, tracking ability, and puck control." (McKeen's Draft Preview)

• "The Swedish netminder is one of a half dozen draft-eligible goalies who was very highly regarded going into the season only to see his stock plummet as he has failed to perform up to expectations in any of his Under-18 appearances." (Recrutes.ca)

• "His mobility is average, and he has shown vulnerability when pucks miss the net and he has travel from post to post quickly on wrap-around opportunities." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
