We've drafted the D from Brynäs, not the goalie

Red Line Report via usatoday

Sleepers

There are a ton of good candidates for this category. By Red Line's definition, a sleeper is a guy who probably won't get selected that high, but has a chance to develop into one of the better players at his position in the draft. Using that as our criteria, we would select a pair of little-known Europeans, Alexei Bereglazov and Fredric Larsson, as our sleepers.

Larsson came out of nowhere late in the season and was terrific in Sweden's junior under-20 playoffs for Brynas, and had scouts taking notice with his raw size and skating ability. At 6-3, 172 pounds, he's thin as a rail and lacks strength right now, but his development curve appears to be headed straight upward. He shows good poise and patience handling the puck, always skating with his head up looking to make plays, and usually makes very good decisions in puck movement. He's raw as hell, but has the kind of tools that project well down the road.

Looks like this is our guy:

Hope he turns out better than the last D-man we took from Brynas.

MiamiScreamingEagles 06-23-2012 11:23 AM

^ I posted the wrong info earlier and it was corrected in other posts so not to cause confusion.

Whee, the J18 Elit Most Penalized Player this past season!

Looks good.

This is the kind of high-risk pick I can get on board with. If he busts, he busts--but most of the time you aren't going to get a key contributor in the fourth round.

This, the Noebels pick last year. :clap:

Looks like he has a ways to go. But the tools are there.

Meltzer seems to like him. Says he's physical.

Bertilsson isn't a bad player, he is just not NHL material. Let's hope for this guy now. He comes from a great organization.

I have no idea why Philadelphia didn't sign Bertilsson, he was one of the leading d-men in the SEL playoffs this year. He would absolutely at least make your AHL-team better. Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up in NA soner or later.

Yeah, they're developing quality players like crazy over the last few years.
Even if he doesn't make the NHL, he could provide some in the AHL and we all know our farm system is lacking a bit to say the least.
Getting into the playoffs would provide some huge experience for those kids.

right but the point of the NHL draft is to select players who will be able to contribute at the NHL level.

– I was out fishing when I learned I had been drafted. I didn't have any expectations before the draft so I'd call it a really big surprise, Fredric Larsson says.

How much contact have you had with Philadelphia?
– I've only talked to them once, and that was during the hockey World Championships. Two finnish scouts met with me and we talked about what type of player I am and my thoughts about my future. I got the impression that they were interested.

– My agent thought my chances of getting drafted were 50/50. It is somewhat of a lottery. I'm really happy about being drafted.

– I'll do everything I can to reach the NHL, no matter how long it takes to get there.

– My main focus now is getting as far as I can in the Brynäs organization, so in the upcoming season I'll try to take a prominent role in our J20 team
