Additional Information Big, mobile Swedish defender who does everything at a high level. Smart, offensive, and physical on defense, he checks all the boxes as a future NHL'er who can play the fast pace and make plays in his end due to his world class skating ability. NHL team scouts that are down grading him are doing so based him not seeing big minutes with his new AIK team, as a new young buck in the pecking order, but there are definite signs of creativity on the offensive side. The same was true as the youngest defender on the Swedish World Junior U-20 team. Granted he showed chinks in his game with over-handles and longer than necessary possessions, and late read/reacts but I would warn NHL teams from dismissing his size and - skill ratios that allows him to explode on his edges and close in all directions, snuffing zone entries, funneling speedy opposing attackers, driving step for step with them, and sometimes showing a bit of edge in contact. One can imagine him being an even more consistent defensive force who finishes checks and strips pucks even more robustly. This lad gets the nuances of his position and might be one of the fastest backward burst skaters at his position. Never stops moving, has the stretch pass down, and a strong heavy low point shot, and the eagerness to apply offensive pressure down low. I see great value selecting him in the top tier of the first round, not later.
