Not ranked by CSS, ISS, FC, The Hockey Writers, The Scouting Report, TSN or Button.

Curious about him...

Circulartheory 06-23-2012 10:38 AM

Poor Swedish translation:

Quote:

Mr Gunnarsson has Elite League by storm and sensationally been one of Luleň's best three runs. The 19-year-old talent who was recruited from Leksand - and only had 15 senior matches (Hockey League and Division 1) on the merit list - took on the opinion of many almost "impossible" task of trying to take a regular place in the elite series' strongest back crew, but had the chance to early in the Elite League as a result of Luleň's back injury and began league career by scoring on his first (!) shots.

Defensive D-man, I presume. Guessing he'll play in Sweden for a while.

We'll he's already 20 years old. Interesting to see what happens.

Victorious Secret 06-23-2012 10:51 AM

I'm thinking 1 year over there. Maybe? Idk.

And I'm going to equate this to Fletcher seeing something he liked while watching Gustafsson because he's about as ranked as Eero Elo. Another big D though.

Probably a good estimate. Interesting :)

At this point in the draft, I don't think it's fair to expect much. It'll be a pleasant surprise if he ever comes over at all.

Victorious Secret 06-23-2012 10:58 AM

But with his age, if anything happens, it will be sooner rather than later.

Northland Wild Man 06-23-2012 11:00 AM

Another big defense man? I like it.

thestonedkoala 06-23-2012 11:00 AM

I think he'll be competing for a spot come training camp. He's already 20 years old.

This...is a strange pick.

From bits and pieces online, I'm getting a feeling he is a solid player but with tons of room to fill out, which implies he has more potential once he puts on muscle

AHLer next year. We need to fill in our defense!

HamiltonOHL 06-23-2012 11:07 AM

anyone know if any relations to leafs Carl?

Haite 06-23-2012 11:10 AM

I wonder if he's had a growth spurt as of late which might've slowed down his development.
