Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "An intriguing talent from Sweden because of his imposing frame and his ability to use his body in the offensive zone. He played the majority of the (2016-17) season with Skelleftea Under-20 team in the SuperElit league, but also in the J18 Allsvenskan and J18 Elit leagues. ... He has good speed in a straight line, but will need to improve his acceleration and agility. He's good on the forecheck when using his size and uses his long reach well."
