Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "The World Juniors were an eye opener for a lot of scouts who didn’t have Rondbjerg on their radar for the draft, especially when the team overachieved and gave much more highly-regarded opponents a run for their money. The Danish winger displayed decent skills, sense, competitiveness and an ability to cycle the puck and protect the puck against older opponents." (Recrutes.ca)

• "Good two-way forward who takes pride in his game in his own end, and he’s good on the penalty-killing units. He does a good job blocking shooting lanes with his body and stick, and he’s a good shot-blocker. He showed good smarts in the defensive zone and good anticipation. He’s always involved in the defensive zone and likes to support his defensemen by coming back deep in his zone to help them retrieve pucks and start the transition game. He has good size and protects the puck really well in the offensive zone; at the World Juniors in Montreal he was outstanding in that area." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Eager to have puck on his stick and push the play towards the offensive zone. Challenges defenscemen with both outside speed and inside moves. Good patience with puck -- sees plays developing. Hard and accurate wrist shot which he uses to great effect on the PP. Plays with determination and wants to be a difference-maker. Still a bit green and somtimes loses concentration and focus. At times tries to force play, but overall, possesses very good hockey sense. Prefers open-ice, does not really dig in the corners much." (Red Line Report)
