Draft History
Drafted in 2015 NHL Draft: 1st Round, 20th Overall Pick by Minnesota Minnesota
DraftSite Scouting Report Strong competing centre who plays solid in all zones. A player who at an earlier juncture projected as a low-end roster player who is strong in the dot and very responsible defensively. He is smart and comes to win every night. It isn’t like he is a deft speedster;but he most certainly continues to improve his feet and continue on the uptick as a smart strong-on-the-puck player who reads the situations and knows when to continue carrying and when to find the teammate with a pass. He needs more strength but is strong in traffic and creates space on the attack. He supports well defensively and always instinctively position himself well. He will continue to fill his gangly body out and get even stronger than he already is. There are glimpses of strong offensive instincts that may flourish as he fills out physically. Already creates space and excels in the dot.A long term player who some team will take a chance on.

User Scouting Reports

A gritty center with good size and likes to get his nose dirty. Uses his big body to protect the puck well and wins corner battles. Drives the net and goes into dirty areas. Tries to be in your face each shift and is a good agitator. Good net presence to screen and provoke rebounds. Has a nose for scoring and seems always in good position. Can play physical and is present in after whistle scrums. His first steps are not the fastest and his skating abilities are improvable. Eriksson Ek is a very competitive center with a good scoring touch and great work ethic. Besides his good shot, he might not have high end scoring assets but is doing all for the win and fits into NHL style hockey. ---www.scouting-factory.blogspot.com---
